Report: Jazz Strongly Considering Marcus Smart With 5th Pick
Let the draft rumors continue. We’re less than four hours away from the Cavs being on the clock, and rumors are swirling about what will happen tonight when the Draft finally begins.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski (aka Woj Bomb Droppa) of Yahoo! Sports, the Utah Jazz are giving real thought to taking Marcus Smart with the fifth overall pick.
Marcus Smart is emerging as serious consideration for Utah with fifth pick, league sources tell Yahoo. Smart didn't workout for Jazz.

As Woj mentions, Smart did not work out for Utah, mainly because the Jazz already drafted point gurd Trey Burke last season. Fellow prospect Dante Exum turned down an opportunity to work out for Utah as well. Despite all of this, the Jazz may end up taking Smart if they feel he is the best player available.
