The NBA announced that Paolo Banchero, Walker Kessler, Bennedict Mathurin, and Jalen Williams will be media correspondents throughout the 2023 NBA Finals. Kessler had a breakout season and proved to be one of the bright young defensive stars in the league with his high IQ, surprising quickness/athleticism, and rim protection. Kessler has a chance to be a really great player, and opportunities like this will actually help him in the long run with votes for things like DPOY and the all-defensive team.

There's also been analysis of some of the presumed choices at No. 16, plus a first attempt at a full, 30-pick, first-round mock draft. Now it's time to take a look at some of the players under consideration for the Jazz's third pick, which comes in at No. 28. The 6-foot-6 Frenchman (with a 6-10 wingspan) is a proven menace as an on-ball defender, and is great in a team construct, too, especially with weakside blocks.

Jazz fans are rightly intrigued about how differently this team might look by the end of this offseason. No less than Justin Zanik noted that there could be a lot of change coming this offseason. created some hypothetical odds on where embattled Suns big man DeAndre Ayton will be playing next season ? and the Jazz are third on that list at +600. My initial reaction was that this made zero sense: Ayton is a center, and the Jazz are already pretty committed to some guy named Walker Kessler who happens to play the same position and was just named to the All-Rookie First Team.

As the June 22 NBA draft continues to near, it?s clear that the only sure thing is that Victor Wembanyama will go No. 1 overall to the San Antonio Spurs. Outside of that singular fact, there are a lot of things that could change on draft night and any one of those things could have ripple effect on the rest of the NBA. Since we know that the only sure thing is the Spurs sticking with the top pick, that means that the second, third and fourth picks could be up for grabs.

We asked ten SLC Dunk writers to give their predictions on the upcoming 2023 NBA draft and its prospects. With the Utah Jazz owning three picks in this draft, it's something all Jazz fans have their eyes on. Utah holds the first round's 9th, 16th, and 28th picks. This draft's crown jewel, Victor Wembanyama, is being touted as an all-time great prospect. He is almost universally projected as the number-one pick. After the French phenom, however, there are many questions and differing predictions about the draft order. Even the second pick is disputed. Will it be Scoot Henderson, Brandon Miller, or even somebody else? The SLC Dunk writers made their opinions known. Who are your top five overall

Naming rights deals for arenas and stadiums were not really much of a thing until December 1988, when then-Lakers owner Jerry Buss reached an agreement with Great Western Savings & Loan to rebrand ?The Forum? in Los Angeles as ?The Great Western Forum.? The Utah Jazz announced Saturday, Jan. 14, 2023, the arena will once again be named Delta Center with a new agreement with Delta Air Lines.

Quite fortuitously, that seems not to be the case yet when it comes to the 2023 NBA Draft. It'll be helped along even more by the fact that so many teams currently hold multiple picks ? the Jazz have three picks, as do the Pacers, while the Hornets, Blazers, Rockets, Magic, and Nets each have two, which will inevitably lead to more movement and additional permutations of possibilities.

The NBA draft lottery odds played out how the Jazz expected, corresponding exactly with the team's finish in the standings. Coming off a 37-45 record during the regular season, the Jazz will have several options available as it drafts No. 9 in the first round. With plenty of holes to fill, the Jazz likely will zero in on a point guard or a wing with decent length. Typical of the lottery system, some of the 14 participating teams got lucky when the pingpong balls bounced their way.

The Kentucky Wildcats have typically been among the programs hearing their name in the NBA Draft. It will be a bit different this time around with Cason Wallace the only unanimous first-round pick. Jacob Toppin and Oscar Tshiebwe could both be selected in the second round, as well as Chris Livingston, but it seems like another year at the collegiate level could best suit all three. Tshiebwe is a former National Player of the Year, and Livingston was a five-star recruit.

It's no secret the Utah Jazz are prioritizing positional size and versatile players in the upcoming draft. After an era that saw the Jazz prioritize specialists, no matter their physical frame, the franchise is looking to avoid perceived weaknesses where they can. One of those options should be Maxwell Lewis. Currently Maxwell Lewis has an average ranking across industry big boards of 23.
