Williams-Goss, Hicks work out for Jazz
Utah held another pre-draft workout on Saturday, with Gonzaga G Nigel Williams-Goss, UNC big man Isaiah Hicks and Baylor F Johnathan Motley making up three of the six players in attendance. The Jazz currently own four picks (24th, 30th, 42nd and 55th) in Thursday's draft.
