SALT LAKE CITY – The NBA Draft is quickly approaching on June 22nd, and with the Utah Jazz owning three first round picks, they’ll be working out a large number of prospects.
Though the Jazz aren’t announcing workouts for the 2023 NBA Draft, it’s safe to assume they’ll get a close-up look at several dozen players projected all across the board.
Victor Wembanyama is widely expected to be the top overall pick, but there are numerous talented draft prospects that will be available 1-60 that have the opportunity to change the fortune for a franchise.
The Jazz own their own ninth pick, the 16th pick via the Minnesota Timberwolves, and the 28th pick via the Philadelphia 76ers.
With that in mind, here are the in-depth looks at prospects that will be candidates to join the Jazz in the upcoming draft.
