Tyrone Corbin is putting his stamp on the Utah Jazz

Kevin O’Connor on what he saw at the Jazz’s first draft workout (5/14):

Well, you know, what we saw was some older players, you know, juniors and seniors, that are in the draft. And when you do that, you always see a little bit more experience and you always see a little bit more focus on guys.

Dennis Lindsey on the Chicago draft combine:

(According to this list of combine participants compiled at SLC Dunk, just nine of 63 players taking part in the combine were 23 or older: Mason Plumlee, Gorgui Dieng, Jeff Withey, James Southerland, Jackie Carmichael, Trevor Mbakwe, Kenny Kadji, Colton Iverson, and DeWayne Dedmon.

Colton Iverson is the only player that is at least 23 years old and at both the combine and the Jazz workout. FWIW.)

In conclusion: Move along, no young hotshots to see here.

    I don’t understand the crime that was committed here. Is there more context? The Jazz are interviewing players that are going to be around when they pick at 14 or 21 or in the 2nd round. Some of them are 23 years old. Some are younger. Some are 19. They have & will interview them too. The process is ongoing. The draft is a month away. And what’s wrong with a 23-year-old who can come in and provide depth immediately (Plumlee) or maybe improve us defensively (Dieng)? I guess you’d rather have the next DeShawn Stevenson?

      There is no crime. I was just poking fun at Corbin’s preference for vets and older guys…
