The 2013 NBA draft is just around the corner, and teams around the league are starting to figure out which prospects interest them. The Utah Jazz are very thin at the point guard spot, especially with Mo Williams’ contract coming off the books this summer. While the Jazz are expected to select a point guard with one of their picks, they are not necessarily looking to add a starter through this year’s draft, according to Salt Lake Tribune:

But while the Jazz, who own picks 14, 21 and 46, are widely expected to choose at least one point guard, a thin market and a potentially shape-shifting draft order could complicate matters.

“We don’t have any under contract,” said Walt Perrin, the Jazz’s vice president of player personnel. “But that doesn’t necessarily mean if we draft a point guard he’s coming in to be the starter anyway.”

The Jazz have looked at pretty much every option at this point, and a lot of point guards have visited the team. Dennis Schroeder, C.J. McCollum, Michael Carter-Williams, Shane Larkin, Trey Burke and Isaiah Canaan are some of the guys that Utah has looked at, although Burke, who is expected to be gone when the Jazz are on the clock, has not worked out with the team.

Adding depth at the point guard position will be important for the Jazz, but the team will quite likely look for a starter in free agency.
