Jazz training Zach Edey, Tidjane Salaun and other top prospects

With just over two weeks to go before the NBA Draft arrives, the Utah Jazz have continued their due diligence as they prepare for the big two nights in late June. A collection of pre-season workouts for the Jazz has surfaced during the early stages of the offseason, and that trend is active again.

According to Tony Jones from The Athleticsthe Jazz are bringing at least seven different prospects into the building for pre-draft workouts this week, including Purdue big man Zach Edey.

Here’s the full list of the seven most recently reported prospects brought to Utah:

Ryan Dunn, F, Virginia

Zach Edey, C, Purdue

Oso Ighodaro, F, Marquette

Tyler Kolek G, Marquette

Jonathan Mogbo, F, San Francisco

Tidjane Salaun, F, France

Baylor Scheierman, G, Creighton

The Jazz will enter this year’s draft with two first-rounders at 10th and 29th, along with a second at the top of the round at 32nd overall. As expected, Utah is looking up and down to see who is worthy of a selection.

Two players in this list that stand out are Edey and the French striker Tidjane Salaun. Notably, both guys are solid first-rounders just a few weeks away from the big night, and Utah could do some investigative work to see if they’re worthy of a top-ten pick.

Edey was the centerpiece of this year’s Purdue team that went on to compete for a national title, averaging 25.2 points, 12.2 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 39 games. As for Salaun, he’s a bit of a raw and unpredictable prospect entering this draft cycle, but at just 18 years old, with a 6-foot-4, 8-foot wingspan, the upside is one of the most appealing in its class.

Needless to say, Utah will have all hands on deck as we approach the final steps before the 2024 NBA Draft kicks off on Wednesday, June 26.
