No. 9: Utah Jazz select Brandin Podziemski

Original pick: Taylor Hendricks

The Utah Jazz may have already found their guard of the future in Baylor guard Keyonte George, who was selected at No. 16. However, in this scenario, they go with another combo guard in Brandin Podziemski, who provides a safer floor due to his well-rounded game and more efficient shooting.

Podziemski was the No. 19 pick by the Golden State Warriors. He has been one of the biggest draft gems so far in the 2023 class, as evidenced by his NBA All-Rookie First Team selection.

The Santa Clara guard averaged 9.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 3.7 assists on 45/39/63 shooting splits. As an elite shooter and quick decision-maker, Pordziemski is an ideal fit for the Warriors and head coach Steve Kerr's offensive system, predicated on off-ball movement and floor spacing.

However, it'd be interesting to see Podziemski take on more of a lead playmaking role for the Jazz, who currently lack backcourt depth. They could use another piece to complement Collin Sexton, and Podziemski would be a good pairing as someone whose shooting threat can open up the floor for Sexton's downhill style of play. He's even a better fit than George in that sense.
