SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz welcomed in another group of college products for a workout ahead of next week’s NBA draft, including Michigan forward Moussa Diabate.

Thursday’s group featured six players, pushing the total number of players who have worked out for the team ahead of the draft to over 50.

Despite bringing in several dozen players for workouts, the Jazz do not currently have a pick in the June 23rd draft.

Moussa Diabate: Forward – Michigan

Moussa Diabate played just one season at Michigan where he averaged 9.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in 32 appearances for the Wolverines.

Diabate is the highest-ranked high school prospect to work out for the Jazz during the pre-draft process as the forward was a top-20 recruit before committing to play at Michigan.

A tremendous athlete, Diabate easily finishes above the rim at 6-11 and runs the floor well with a solid motor.

The French forward has a lot of room to develop, and has a good chance of sneaking into the second round of the draft.

Ron Harper Jr.: Forward – Rutgers

Ron Harper Jr. is the son of long NBA guard Ron Harper who spent 15 years in the league and won five titles, including two with the Chicago Bulls and three with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Rutgers forward spent four seasons in college where he averaged 15.8 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 1.9 assists as a senior while shooting 44 percent from the field and 34 percent from the three-point line.

Harper Jr. stands 6-6 with an impressive 7-1 wingspan and knocked down a promising 39 percent of his 5.3 three-point attempts during his final season at Rutgers.

The forward is a borderline second-round pick in the draft, and also met with the Jazz at the draft combine.
