Jazz Hoops: Utah cleans up on draft night

Having one pick fall into your lap requires a bit of luck.

Having two - in the first round - fall your away is a little more than luck.

The Jazz found themselves with Dante' Exum and Rodney Hood.

That means, the Jazz found a potentially elite point guard. That means the Jazz filled a need at small forward with a scorer who can get to the basket and shoot from the perimeter.

Many have called this an A plus haul for Utah. But will they contribute right away?

"I think we're going to have to be patient with Dante'," is how Jazz General Manager Dennis Lindsey put it. Yes, Exum is young, and will need a learning curve. But he also has a ton of talent, and can make an impact with his athleticism alone.

It will be interesting to see how it all turns out. Summer league and free agency are up next.
