NBA Insiders Amin Elhassan and Bradford Doolittle break down the draft profile, needs and potential picks of the 14 teams eligible for the NBA draft lottery this year. With some help from Chad Ford's Big Board of top 30 prospects, we take a look at the Utah Jazz.


Personnel needs: playmaking PG, SG or C

Major need: The Jazz have nearly a full set of young players: Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors might be the NBA's frontcourt of the future, Gordon Hayward looks like a keeper on the wing and Alec Burks has shown flashes of being a starting-caliber player. At the end of the regular season, Hayward was the grand old man of this quartet at age 23. Obviously Utah will be keeping some veterans in its rotation mix, but finding a young point guard to complete an under-25 starting lineup would be an exciting thing for NBA prospect hounds. Point guard has been a glaring roster hole for the Jazz since Deron Williams departed. The question: Can the void be filled with this draft class?
