SALT LAKE CITY — Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to Tyrone's Traveling Circus and Curiosity Show! Witness young Jeremy Evans as he hovers on thin air. See Alec Burks , the human Ginsu knife, who can shred, chop, slice and dice defenders as he slashes to the rim! Observe the curious Gordon Hayward, face of a child, body of an adult! Gape in terrible awe as Derrick Favors lifts three times his own weight, yet still pulls off a jump-hook! Stare in disbelief as Enes Kanter moves massive objects with only his shoulders!
Then there are the Jazz, who moved to get even younger — or at least better — by trading Mehmet Okur on Thursday for a draft pick and trade exception. They have Evans, who can install light bulbs in the rafters while waiting to descend. Favors and Kanter are a pair of No. 3 draftees. Last time the Jazz had a No. 3 draftee it was Deron Williams. Hayward is growing into his enthusiasm, a versatile and fundamentally sound player. Burks already has an NBA body and seems to just lack experience.
