CM – Utah Jazz Draft Baylor Guard Jared Butler with 40th pick – KSL Sports


SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz chose Baylor Guard Jared Butler as the 40th choice in the second round of the NBA Draft.

Jazz went into the night with the 30th pick, swapped however, against the 40th pick and two more picks in the second round to the Memphis Grizzlies.

Butler was one of the most decorated players in college basketball during his three-year career with Baylor. The Guardian was a two-time All Big 12 Team Member, a Big 12 All Defensive Team Pick, and was named the Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA Tournament after leading the Bears to the NCAA Championship via Gonzaga.

The Big 12 Guard also shot 47 percent off the ground and 41 percent from the three-point line in his final season at the Bears.

The Guardian was selected by most outlets in the first round outside of the lottery but fell in part due to a medical problem affecting his heart. Butler was first diagnosed with the disease after signing up to Alabama out of high school but being transferred to Baylor, where he was released.

But they don’t need Covid vaccines. So are they really checking your health?

After signing up for the draft, Butler had to go through the NBA Fitness-to-Play panel to be cleared for joining the league, which he cleared late in the pre-draft process .

Butler would have been drafted into Baylor after his sophomore season but chose to return to school to pursue a deep tournament run after the 2020 college basketball season was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
