Jazz show off draft picks, but growth must come from within

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The last 48 hours have been all about the draft picks for the Utah Jazz as the team introduced former Kentucky forward Trey Lyles and Boston College Olivier Hanlan during a Friday news conference.

The future of the organization and its immediate playoff hopes, however, are all about those already under contract.

The draft is an optimistic time of adding young players who teams hope will be significant contributors in the future. That's especially true for lottery teams that missed the playoffs and normally need immediate help.
