NBA Draft 2014: Utah Jazz to work out Fuquan Edwin, Josh Huestis, and four others on Thursday

Who is your shooting coach? Kirilenko? - Chris Chambers

The Utah Jazz will continue their "seniors day" theme with their early NBA Draft workout schedule by bringing in six more tomorrow, on Thursday:

Only Edwin and Heustis look to be second rounders -- if anything at all. We know the Jazz do these 'warm up' workouts early each draft season. These are seniors who have agents who we may want to curry the favor of, so we bring them in, and maybe bring them back in to "work out" the players we're really interested in.

Well, here are their stats next to the guys we worked out today.

Btw, if you think the Jazz are going PG and "hiding" PG evaluations between a legion of wings, then the guys we're into are Cotton, Holt, Jackson, and Cobbs. But I don't think we're doing 'double secret evaluations' anymore. The "no comment" era is over.

What do I think of these kids? Well, they will no doubt say all the right things (the post workout interviews tell that story), but the question is where exactly would they fit? I guess in a season where the Jazz paid $11 million to Richard Jefferson it's important to find out what the real market value is for a wing player.

I will caution that the Jazz left the draft last season with players picked in none of the draft spots we started the night with; and more importantly, the team rarely picks players we even work out. I think the last one we did was Morris Almond.
