i dont think been high on Frank, I'd probably have him in my top15, has anything to do with Diallo, what does Hami bring? he is a good athlete sure, nor particularly strong, can't shoot, can dribble, best bet is a defensive guy that can't guard much bigger players, his frame is kind of what it is.

i am not really sure he amounts anything honestly, I'd not take him probably, like at all.

Jazz are taking him at 24. Everyone else, stay away.

How is he 39 on draft express??? I've had the opportunity to watch Frank play basketball since my freshman year of high school (he originally played for my high school then transferred to Lone Peak, he always torched my school after that). His athleticism and shooting skills are outstanding! That combination alone should make him at least a 1st rounder!!

I think the mocks are way off on him. Definitely wouldn't expect him to be there in the 2nd round. Even if never amounts to much of a PG he still looks like he's going to be a efficient scorer who can get to the rim and shoot.

You were right back in March yosemite. If we can't trade back with Portland I'm perfectly fine with taking him at 11.

Frank Jackson was supposed to work out with the Jazz on Saturday. Woj is now reporting that he's having foot surgery. Seems like he should be a first-round pick.

Should have returned to Duke. He's headed to the second round.

Utah should be ideal in so many ways not just for him but the organization as well. If they aren't going to pay George Hill to stick around between Frank and Dante they could figure that position out and go all in for Hayward to stay.

Not at all! No way even with his foot surgery the Jazz don't draft him at 24 imo, there's not a pick that doesn't make more sense for them, local product, a guy who can be an offball scorer (huge need for us) defensive potential, and potential to become our PGOTF (could be in competition with Exum, which i think would be good for both cause I think they could actually play together with Hayward on the team)

There are more teams in front of the Jazz who I know are heavily intruiged by Frank.

Be interesting to see if the foot surgery effects where he goes at all. I agree, I think Utah's a good spot for him, especially if Hill's gone.

The Jazz are going to try to bring in a veteran FA at PG. They just aren't keen to pay George Hill more than $20M.

Think he's a second round pick. His speed is his most enticing trait and he has to have foot surgery? A bit scary to draft in the first round if it affects him.

Call me crazy, but I think the foot issue is a bit of a smokescreen. Not that he didn't need the surgery, but ... it's may. Draft workouts are just starting to ramp up and he elects to take himself out of the draft circuit? Hmm...

He admitted he didn't have pain during the year so it wasn't anything major. I don't think it will cost him much ground in the draft because I think he already has a wink-wink with a team.

Speed? I disagree, his most enticing trait is his ability to score in multiple ways

The rumor mill in the circle of friends Frank has here, is that Frank has definitely received a wink wink from a team, but they conflict on which team, the team said the most is the Jazz however I've heard two other teams that are really interested, Milwaukee and here's the interesting one.... Charlotte!

How reliable that information is, who knows! But something is better than nothing, and that's all i can offer to the board! If i hear any updates I will make sure to post

He can score because of his speed... That's how he beats defenders.

? He's not even all that fast.. He's got ok speed but he's a good spot up shooter who also has what i'd call sneaky athleticism

He looks pretty quick to me. It's his 1st step though that's getting him to the rim like that.

F. Jackson definitely got a promise somewhere. Discovered this minor stress fracture during the season. Didn't get surgery after Duke's season ended. Didn't get surgery after school ended. Wows a lot of people in scrimmages and puts up elite athletics numbers at the combines. Worked out for teams ???, then elects to get surgery now?

Not seeing any reports of his private team workout on twitter.
