Gordon Hayward in the Lottery?

Posted on June 24, 2010 by


The Utah Jazz took Gordon Hayward with the 9th pick in the NBA draft.  Imagine a world where Butler does not advance to the Final Four.  In such a world, does a sophomore from Butler — who averaged only 15.5 point per game and shot less than 30% from the college three-point line — go in the lottery?  That is the question the Utah Jazz should have asked.  I get the sense, though, that this question didn’t enter the minds of the people in Salt Lake City.
