2018 Pre-Draft Workouts 

Post#1 » by stitches » Sat May 12, 2018 6:28 pm

Well, here's the thread for the Jazz pre-draft workouts. Seems like they start today with the following group:

DiVincenzo is interesting... I liked Gabriel coming out of high school but he kind of stagnated. He's still intriguing with his ability to stretch the floor.

Do you recall how many guys the Jazz brought in last year for workouts? I don't recall at all when the Jazz brought O'Neale in for a look. Is my assumption correct that these early looks are pretty much about putting a summer league roster together?

The fact that workouts are already happening makes me happy. This is DL’s time to find some more hidden gems.

2 years ago they brought something insane like... 100+ players. I think last year they explicitly stated that they've decided to cut down and had about 70 if I'm not mistaken(still high number compared to other teams) so they can focus on quality rather than quantity. Those early ones are with players that have not yet decided whether to enter the draft or not(Gabriel, DiVincenzo) if I'm not mistaken. Some of them are draftable players(DiVincenzo for example), some are not...

About O'Neale - he participated in a vets camp with the Jazz, not pre-draft workout. he was 2 years removed from entering the draft and going undrafted when we signed him.

I think those are the prospects that have not yet decided if they will stay in the draft so they want early feedback from teams, so that's good to know that the Jazz are participating in that process even with the players who are on the fence and can potentially sway a prospect or two one way or the other...

I’d love to get Huerter in for a workout before he makes a decision.

Chandler Hutchinson reportedly has a promise somewhere from 20-30. Hmmm......

Good size, how is his shooting? Heard it wasn't the greatest and don't most players agents leak that a player has a promise to drum up interest?

Also if he can't gain weight then he probably is Jeremy Evans 2.0, Diop is a better choice.

When I watch him I get similar vibe to what I got watching Kuzma... he just looks like a basketball player, there are small things about his game that scream NBA.

That is a truly awful comp. Chandler is just fine from a weight standpoint and is very skilled. Evans was super skinny and super athletic. Nothing similar about these guys.

Ya, I agree 100%... Hutch is absolutely nothing like Jeremy Evans. Not sure what else to say about that comp... at a loss for words tbh haha.
