Where Would Current Utah Jazz Players Be Drafted This Year?

Without taking age into consideration, where would the current Jazz players be taken in this years draft?  Keep in mind this is completely my opinion on what I’ve personally seen and what I hold most valuable in a player.  I went off of Chad Ford’s latest mock to get the order.  Again this is based off where the Jazz players are now as they look and what their game is and potential right now not when they were in college. (side note: If I was talking trades I would number my guys just like this to see if the trade is something I would really want to do.  ie Trading Favors to move up-at first I said no but then after ranking them…)

**This is not the way I rank the current Jazz players but if I was a scout/gm looking at them for the future and not knowing anything more than what I’ve seen**

1. Cleveland Cavaliers- Andrew Wiggins

2. Milwaukee Bucks- Joel Embiid

3. Philadelphia 76ers- Jabari Parker

4. Orlando Magic- Dante Exum

5. Utah Jazz- Noah Vonleh

6. Boston Celtics- Derrick Favors (I think he falls behind Vonleh because of Noah’s all around game)

7. Los Angeles Lakers- Enes Kanter (Ahead of Randle for sure I think, Gordon was a tossup)

8. Sacramento Kings- Aaron Gordon

9. Charlotte Hornets- Julius Randle

10. Philadelphia 76ers- Marcus Smart

11. Denver Nuggets- Doug McDermott

12. Orlando Magic- Nik Stauskas

13. Minnesota Timberwolves- Gary Harris

14. Phoenix Suns- Dario Saric

15. Atlanta Hawks- Gordon Hayward I put Hayward in front of Burks because of what I think GMs will pay them

16. Chicago Bulls- Alec Burks Depending on what you’re looking for Alec could be before Hayward based solely on athleticism

17. Boston Celtics- Adreian Payne

18. Phoenix Suns- Zach Lavine

19. Chicago Bulls- James Young

20. Toronto Raptors- Trey Burke A lot like Ennis

21. Oklahoma City Thunder- Tyler Ennis

22. Memphis Grizzlies- PJ Hairston

23. Utah Jazz- Cleanthony Early

24. Charlotte Hornets- Rodney Hood

25. Houston Rockets- Elfrid Payton

26. Miami Heat- Jusuf Nurkic

27. Phoenix Suns- Jerami Grant

28. Los Angeles Clippers- KJ McDaniels

29. Oklahoma City Thunder- TJ Warren

30. San Antonio Spurs- Rudy Gobert Why not?
