This is the day of the NBA Draft. If you didn't know, because all of the posts here seem to be about all of that. The draft is on ESPN, starting at 5:00 PM MT, if you need more info on how to watch it (including online) click here. The Utah Jazz currently are picking #12, #42, and #54. For historical information on those picks click here (check comment section for the 2nd rounders info). For information on the players, their schools, and their rankings click here (data set is over 40 mocks, and over 2000 player orders). The Jazz were picked to draft mainly Turner, Kaminsky, or Booker according to the experts, but the full breakdown is here. Over the last two months the Jazz worked out over 100 players, for the full list click here. Now that all the formalities are up, let's start the draft thread!

Here is the first round . . . and don't worry, I'll be updating this as the night goes on.
