“ 38. Utah Jazz (via NY): PG Saben Lee, Vanderbilt

The Jazz tend to value versatility throughout their entire roster, which explains why they made the call here to grab Lee at No. 38. He wasn't in our projected top-60, so the grade reflects that, but Lee's combination as a dribbler, creator and scorer should fit nicely in Utah's system next to Donovan Mitchell. Grade: C+

39. New Orleans Pelicans (via WAS): SF Elijah Hughes, Syracuse

The Pelicans are striking a nice balance as they surround Zion Williamson with talent, underscored here by the selection of the Syracuse standout. Hughes was a big-time college scorer who thrived as a No. 1 option but should excel in a small role as a creator and scorer on the wing. Grade: B”


Does that go under the category of Oops or Knuckleheads?

It’s more than defence, Rudy is an offensive monster too according to advanced metrics. This basically means we can run the same schemes at both ends of the floor all game and stop falling apart when Gobert sits.


Let's look at it this way. With both Favors and Udo behind Rudy, opposing teams are pretty much will have to go over the top of the defense all game or take their chances and getting a whipping in the paint. I'm really warming up to this scenario...Jazz have the shooters on the other end of the floor to keep up with 3-ball reign.

Paul Reed went #58 in this draft. If the Jazz wanted to make a move to pick him up, I'm sure they could have.
