Here’s a look at five possible options the Utah Jazz could select with the No. 23 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft in June.

With the 2019 NBA Draft less than a month away, it’s time to look at some options for the Utah Jazz in the first round of the annual draft.

In one of the more talented drafts in the past few seasons, many teams will look to add key pieces for both the upcoming season and beyond on June 20 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

As of now, the Jazz will head into the draft with the opportunity to add two players to the 2019-20 squad. Utah currently holds the No. 23 overall selection in the first round and the No. 53 pick in the second round.

As far as what the Jazz could be looking for heading into the annual event, there are a few needs in Salt Lake City that will need to be addressed before the start of next year.

With Utah likely moving on from its point guard Ricky Rubio, who was the starting floor general for most of the 2018-19 campaign, the Jazz might look at options at guard to solidify and fill that position moving forward.

That is, of course, if they don’t go after Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley during the offseason, which has been floating around the rumor mill since Utah was bounced out of the playoffs.

Another role that the Jazz might look at as an option in the draft could come at the wing position if they decide they want to shift Donovan Mitchell more towards the point guard spot this upcoming year. A shooter and someone that could provide this Utah squad with another scoring threat would be a key addition.

Utah has been in the rumor mill as a team that is interested in offering potential free agent Tobias Harris a max contract if he hits the open market.

If they don’t look at those two roles, the Jazz could look to bolster their post depth behind starting bigs Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert. That would likely be the third option this team looks at, since the point guard and wing spots seem to be more important roles that will need to be addressed before next season.

As the draft continues to approach, let’s take a look at five potential options the Jazz could consider at No. 23 in June’s draft and how they would fit into the rotation in 2019-20 and beyond.
