The Utah Jazz will leave the draft with only one draft pick this year after selecting three prospects last year. The Jazz traded the #52 pick to the Houston Rockets. It is currently unclear what the Utah Jazz received in return. Trading this pick isn’t that big of a stretch for Utah. After all, they have found incredible value in undrafted free agents after the draft in the past such as Royce O’Neale, Wes Matthews, and Joe Ingles.
Houston will be selecting with the 52nd pick now, choosing Vince Edwards, source tells ESPN. Utah is trading pick.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 22, 2018
Vince Edwards is a small forward out of Purdue University. This Boilermaker graduate (Mychal) is sad that I won’t be able to root for a Purdue player on the Utah Jazz, but Dennis Lindsey knows what he’s doing when it comes to the draft. So we’ll trust his process.
