The Utah Jazz are inviting 6 prospects to a Pre-2017 NBA Draft workout today. Those players?

This workout is most likely who the Utah Jazz will target for one of their two 2nd round draft picks. The Utah Jazz hold the #42 and the #55 picks in the 2017 NBA Draft. One of the draft picks, Nigel Williams-Goss of Gonzaga, compared himself Utah’s George Hill. Aaron Falk of the SL Tribune reports:

"A lot of the teams ask who do you see yourself being like down the road," the point guard from Gonzaga says.

Living in Spokane, Wash., for the past two years, the 22-year-old has been able to get an up-close look at one of the best to ever do it. He has worked out often with John Stockton, and played pickup games against the Hall of Famer.

Williams-Goss, however, uses a different Jazz point guard for his answer: George Hill.

"He's a bigger guard, not the flashiest but he gets the job done at a high level," Williams-Goss said. "He came in as a backup in San Antonio, worked his way up and now he's a star in Utah."
