NBA Trade Rumors: Utah Jazz open to trading draft picks

The Utah Jazz could potential win the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft and they will find that out on Tuesday evening when the draft lottery takes place in New York. But even before they know where they will be picking in the lottery, the Jazz are making it known that their draft picks are for sale and they’re open to the idea of trading them.

The Jazz will have two draft picks in the first round and it’s unclear which pick they’re shopping more. It would seem that the lottery pick is more attractive to buyers while the No. 23 overall pick the Jazz acquired from the Golden State Warriors would seem to be the pick they’re most willing to part with.

At worst the Jazz will be shopping a top-5 pick as well as the No. 23 overall pick in the draft which aren’t bad picks to have for sale.

Either way, we may see some movement with the Utah Jazz in the draft this year as their willingness to trade their picks will no doubt be answered with more than a few trade calls before the June draft kicks off and even more after it does.
