The newest members of the Utah Jazz on Saturday hung out with some of their biggest fans.

And the smallest, too.

Trey Burke, Rudy Gobert and Raul Neto hosted a clinic for 40 members of the Farmington Junior Jazz program at the Zions Bank Basketball Facility in Salt Lake City. The three players joined the Jazz in Thursday's draft.

Burke, the ninth pick of the draft, was traded from Minnesota in exchange for the 14th and 21st picks; Gobert, a 7-foot-2 center from France, was drafted No. 27 and traded to the Jazz for No. 46 and cash; Neto was picked 47th and traded to the Jazz for a future second-round pick.

The players spoke to the kids, then went to work on basketball skills before giving a tour of the practice facility. Burke, Gobert and Neto then answered questions in the organization's press room, where a day earlier they were introduced to the Utah media.
