19-year old German point guard Dennis Schröder's draft stock has been on the rise since his strong showing at the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland.
With 18 points and six assists, Schröder helped lead the World Team to a 112-98 victory over a USA squad that featured Jabari Parker.
With a 6'8" wingspan, Schröder's frame is reminiscent of Mavericks guard Rodrigue Beaubois. His speed and quickness are comparable as well. One difference could be a tighter handle for Schröder who showed deft ball handling skills in Portland.
When Utah first goes on the clock at No. 14, they'll almost certainly be looking for a point guard. Schröder could really help increase the tempo at which the Jazz play the game, and would make up one half of a potentially dynamic pick and roll combo with Derrick Favors.
He's also demonstrated solid jump shooting ability by hitting outside attempts in Portland and 40 percent of his threes for Germany's New Yorker Phantoms last year.
He is just 19 though, and accustomed to a European game. There may be a bit more of a learning curve for him than some other options.
