Rod Zundel ReportingIt's draft night in the NBA, the first for the Utah Jazz in the post-John Stockton era. And what could soon be the post Karl Malone days.
The Jazz, who already have a Russian and a Spaniard under contract, went overseas again. They went to Serbia to get this one. Jazz wanted to get younger and that they did with 19-year old Aleksandar Pavlovic.
