And the worst thing - we are not learning - you just had to give up a good second in order to dump the previous 90s type center who you drafted to backup Rudy. ANd now 3 years after the previous bust at center you drafted... you do the exact same thing. WTF? Just horrible.
The Jazz front office guys are talking like Azubuike is practically the next Shaq. Their whole draft strategy--from trading back to #27, to adding a 2RP, to dumping Bradley, to drafting a wing in the 2nd--was based around getting Udoka and getting Bradley out of his way.
It also shows that the Jazz are tweaking their roster around the edges rather than looking to make sweeping changes.....well, that or they just really didn't like this draft.
They could have taken the day off, played golf all afternoon, and waited for RJ Hampton to fall in their laps. Instead, they decided that no, they've just got to have Azubuike.
As for Elijah Hughes, he's interesting. He's got a bid of Rodney Hood and a bit of JR Smith in him. He could become a starter eventually.
