Exactly 3 weeks from today, the Utah Jazz will enter the 2013 NBA Draft armed with the 14th, 21st and 46th picks. With multiple first-round picks and many teams looking to trade down or out of the first-round, the Jazz appear to be a prime candidate to make a move should they highly covet a player beyond or below their current positions (which may or may not be the case).
Nevertheless, let’s take a look at every draft day trade (on or in the near-vicinity to draft day) the Jazz have made – starting with the most recent:
2007: Traded draft rights to PF Herbert Hill (55th overall) along with trade considerations to Philadelphia in exchange for the draft rights to C Kyrylo Fesenko (38th overall).
2005: 1) Three weeks prior to draft, traded 2005 2nd-round pick (#60 overall SG Alex Acker) to Philadelphia in exchange for a 2008 2nd-rnd pick (#44 overall C Ante Tomic)
2) Traded the 6th pick (SG Martell Webster) and 27th pick (F Linas Kleiza) in the 2005 Draft plus a 2006 1st-rnd pick (#30 overall C Joel Freeland) to Portland in exchange for the 3rd-overall pick (PG Deron Williams)
2004: Traded draft rights of C Pavel Podkolzin (21st overall) to Dallas in exchange for a 2005 1st-rnd pick (#27 overall packaged in Deron Williams trade)
2003: Traded draft rights to SF Ryan Humphrey (19th overall) and C Jamal Sampson (47th overall) to Orlando in exchange for draft rights to C Curtis Borchardt (18th overall).
2000: Four days prior to draft, traded the 26th pick in the 2000 Draft to Denver in exchange for Denver’s 2001 1st-rnd pick. Denver selected C Mamadou N’diaye 26th overall while the Jazz later traded Denver’s pick to Boston in the Donyell Marshall trade. Boston used the pick to select SG Joseph Forte 21st overall.
1998: Traded draft rights to C Nazr Mohammed (29th overall) to Philadelphia in exchange for future 1st-rnd pick (1999: #19 overall SG Quincy Lewis)
1996: Traded draft rights to PF Martin Muursepp (25th overall) to Miami in exchange for future 1st-rnd pick (2000: #23 overall SG DeShawn Stevenson)
1992: Traded 23rd overall pick (PG Lee Mayberry), G/F Blue Edwards and PG Eric Murdock to Milwaukee in exchange for SG Jay Humphries and C Larry Krystowiak.
1990: Two days prior to the 1990 Draft traded 23rd overall pick (Anthony Bonner), 49th overall pick (Phil Henderson), G Bobby Hansen and C Erik Leckner in 3-team deal in which they acquired SG Jeff Malone and the 33rd overall pick (F/C Walter Palmer).
1975: Traded 10th overall pick (SF Bill Robinzine) to Kansas City-Omaha in exchange for F Ron Behagen and 1976 2nd-rnd pick (traded to Portland)
