Some years there's all sorts of local anticipation for the NBA draft (5:30 p.m., ESPN). Jazz fans can't wait to find out who's joining the team.

This year - not so much.

Barring some sort of last-minute trade, the Jazz go into this draft holding the No. 47 pick. Which doesn't exactly lend itself to a lot of excitement.

Ah, well. NBA fans will be interested who teams with better picks take in the draft.
