NBA Draft: Newman's Lottery Picks


It’s draft day!  I’m super excited to see what happens today in the NBA Draft!  I’m also excited for the draft to be over and for us to get to free agency and see the Jazz start to build this new team for next season.  I’m going to list my choices for the top 14 picks.  If any of you watched our Jazzcast (podcast) from yesterday realize I have changed my top 3 picks from what I said in that video.  I’m not ashamed of this because honestly I believe there will be so much movement that it will screw up everyone’s mock drafts so much that it won’t matter.  I’m doing these top 14 as the team sits right now.  I will say that I think Michael Carter-Williams will be the 1st PG taken today and that may open the door for the Jazz to go after Burke.  Join our Live Blog on today at 5 p.m. and talk draft with all our writers while the draft is going on.  Thanks for all your support!
