Round 1 9 (9) Utah Jazz Trey Burke PG 6'1 187 Michigan
Trey Burke

Mike Huguenin's Analysis: In spite of all the pre-draft questions about Trey Burke's lack of size or elite athleticism, he's terrific value here. The Michigan standout became college basketball's player of the year as a sophomore this past season by averaging 18.6 points and 6.7 assists and leading the Wolverines to the national title game. He's hyper-competitive, he shoots well from the perimeter and his drive-and-kick game is an ideal fit for the pick-and-roll-heavy NBA. He may not have the explosiveness of a Chris Paul, but he'll turn out to be one of the better players from this draft.

Note: picked by T'wolves before trade involving Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng.
Round 1 27 (27) Utah Jazz Rudy Gobert C 7'2 238 France
Rudy Gobert

Mike Huguenin's Analysis: Rudy Gobert weighs 20 pounds less than No. 1 overall selection Anthony Bennett yet stands 7 inches taller than him. That should indicate Bennett needs to trim a few pounds and Gobert needs to pack on some more muscle. Gobert has soft hands and an ability to finish at the rim, but in addition to the need to get stronger, he also lacks much in the way of post moves or a jump shot.

Note: Picked by Nuggets before trade
