Another day, another day closer to the NBA Draft. The Jazz are going to be working out six new players tomorrow. It appears to be a PG heavy day. And if you are following along that puts our total of work outs to 7 of 12 guys being PGs. Which is, well, interesting. Because from what I understand the Jazz were "all along" planning on picking up Jamaal Tinsley's option, keeping Earl Watson, and starting Devin Harris. I can't really speculate on it though. I am not against going 4 deep for PGs when the top three guys have known to have injuries now and then. I am hesistant because I am a huge devotee of Myck Kabongo. But hey, who needs a pass 1st pg who can break down a defense with dribble moves and draw in the defense freeing up lanes for our cutters?
The dudes we're working out tomorrow are: Dee Bost of Mississippi State (Sr), JaMychal Green from Alabama (Sr), Scoop Jardine of Syracuse (Sr), Darius Johnson-Odom of Marquette (Jr), Scott Machado of Iona (Sr), and John Shurna from Northwestern (Sr). Heights, weights, lengths, jumps, and stats after the break . . .

I do not have much info on Scoop Jardine, aside from the fact that he was named this way for the chance to hear Hot Rod say his name. Clearly.
Some of these guys know how to hit a three! It's a #DaveWeekMiracle !

I will say that I feel happier about these guys than the first batch of dudes we brought in.
And yes, I'm going to go into more details and look at all the PGs as apples to apples, and all the other dudes as oranges to oranges.
