2024 NBA Draft Profile


Utah Jazz

2024 Draft Picks:

10, 29, 32
2023-24 Season: 31-514th place, Northwest DivisionDid not qualify for playoffs

Pre-Draft Outlook

Building through the Draft has its obvious advantages, except the growing process can be lengthy and at times painstaking, especially if you weren’t blessed with a No. 1 overall pick in a generational Draft (see the Spurs, Victor Wembanyama). Utah is finding that out now after failing to make the playoffs, though it’s not as if the Jazz are regretting anything. Keyonte George, Walker Kessler and Taylor Hendricks will be given time to grow into assets to keep or trade.

The Way To Go

Thanks to trades that sent Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert elsewhere, Utah is flush with Draft capital both now and the near future. At some point, the Jazz will dig into its war chest to acquire a disgruntled star. Until then, Utah will stay the course and keep adding players to develop. With a pair of first-rounders in this Draft, look for Stephon Castle, a big combo guard from UConn, at 10, followed by Zach Edey, the mammoth Purdue center, at 29.
