Areas of Strength:
Jerry Sloan's system has remained sound for two decades, constantly cranking out playoff teams. Williams may be closing in on title as NBA's top point guard. Millsap is a core piece.

Needs Work:
Williams said after season the Jazz couldn't afford to stand pat any longer. The Jazz don't have any scorers, other than Williams and Boozer, truly capable of consistently getting off own shot.

Two Stats That Matter:
-- Players on last season's roster drafted after first round or undrafted altogether.

10 -- Williams' league-high streak of double-figure assist games (2/9-3/1)

A Way To Go:
Not often does a playoff semifinalist find itself drafting in the top 10, but the Jazz are sitting pretty at No. 9. The pick can't be wasted, especially considering the team's payroll and list of free agents. Boozer is almost certainly gone. A decision has to be made with Korver, who set an NBA record for 3-point percentage last season. Moving Kirilenko, who has outlived his contract, could aid the replenishing process. Drafting an impact player to appease and ease the load on Williams is vital. The franchise also knows how to find diamonds in the rough.
