Jazz 2014 NBA draft results look good
Australian guard Dante Exum, a highly touted player who was ranked third on the Jazz’s draft board, slipped to Utah, causing fans to go berserk over the thought of acquiring a potential franchise player and creating a big sense of excitement within the team’s front office.
The Jazz struck gold again later in the first round of the draft when Duke shooting guard Rodney Hood fell to them at No. 23 (the Warriors pick from last offseason’s Richard Jefferson trade). Hood was also ranked much higher on the Jazz’s draft board than where he ended up going.
Both Exum and Hood had moments when they showed their potential during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas in July.
