MARTY BLAKE'S POST-DRAFT ANALYSIS:

"The Jazz get Andre Kirilenko back after two years with the Russian National Team and he will start for them. And they don't have Olden Polynice. Raul Lopez supposedly has something like five years left on his contract with Real Madrid. It's unsure right now because the contract reportedly has a $5 million buyout which means he can't come play. But you don't know that because Real Madrid has been publicizing it, trying to get the NBA teams to understand that. What happened with Lopez is he was sort of their back-up guard until they got to the playoffs, when they started to play him because they wanted to win. They were sort of hiding him, but then when they wanted to win, they started playing him and that's when he started to flourish. The Jazz are going to leave Lopez over there and stay with Jacques Vaughn for another year."
