Green Room Invitees: Cunningham, Green, Mobley, Suggs, Kuminga, Barnes, Mitchell, Bouknight, Keon Johnson, Wagner, Giddey, Jalen Johnson, Kispert, Moody, Jones, Sengun, Thomas, Ziaire Williams, Duarte, Isaiah Jackson.

Not invited: Garuba, Murphy, Springer, Thor, Cooper, Mann, Butler, McBride, Christopher, Dosunmu, Primo, Todd

Garuba would be a steal outside the top 20, imo.

I think Garuba wasn't invited because of the Olympics.

Trey Murphy is the name I’m most surprised to not see invited. I thought he’d got himself into the late lottery.

    That's Moody/Garuba territory.


    I’ve wondered if Bogey + 30 would be enough to entice them.

      My guess is that it wouldn't be, but it is the Kings and I think any potential move with Vivek running the show you can't rule out!

      LOL, watch us drop Favors to a team and get a later pick and then use it to draft another center.

      I'm curious If there's a prospect you'd move one of our vets for if they started to fall...

      For instance I saw a mock that has Kispert being drafted around 25 which is way lower than I've seen elsewhere, If he fell that far and you could get something like Kuzma and 22 for Bogey I'd be in favor. I'm less concerned about the deal but who would you aggressively trade to try and acquire assuming they fell significantly (but not all the way to 30).

      I wouldn't have a problem with that if the Jazz also trade Udoka and get a 2nd round pick back. I like Neemias and Petrusev.

      I think Garuba would be a game-changer for us. For all intents and purposes, he's like the Patrick Williams of this draft. He's been underrated in mocks. His defense, rebounding and toughness would change who the Jazz are.

      Jazz would have to take a hard look at Jalen Johnson and project whether he's going to be able to shoot. He's a lottery talent otherwise--6'9" with athleticism and some ball skills.

      First, aren’t both Garuba and Johnson mocked in the teens? I’m not big on Garuba at all. No offense and has other issues. Jalen Johnson, though, I’m up for. If he falls he could be a steal.

      I still think Ayo and Grimes will be solid to good two way players.

      Locke is mentioning players mocked in the 50s that aren't exciting to me at all. Either I’ll be disappointed tomorrow or Locke is clueless.

      I'd absolutely trade up for Davion Mitchell if he had a slide past 14. Though I can't fathom the Knicks passing on him at 19.

      Garuba I like if you think he can play 4 next to Rudy. Should definitely be able at least fill in that small ball center role if nothing else. If you think he's only a backup center then no.

      Trey Murphy is an obvious one if he slips.

      I really like Neemias, but I'm USU fan so I would love to continue cheering for him. I would love to have him as our backup center, he plays a lot like Gobert.

      I honestly think the Jazz may trade Dok for Queta.

      Vrenz was expecting to get picked in the early 2nd round, but it didn't happen. I'm guessing it was with one of OKC's picks or DET's pick that got traded. Now Vrenz has been offered 2-way contracts, but he can't accept them due to his contract situation in Europe. He needs a full contract from the NBA to leave. So he's staying in Europe.
