14: Andris Biedrins
It's difficult to believe that there was once a time when Biedrins looked to be on his way to becoming a solid NBA center.
He was a double-double machine during the 2008-09 campaign, when he averaged 11.9 points and 11.2 rebounds. The year before, he led the league with a field-goal percentage of 63.
Well, obviously those days of promise are long gone for the 27-year-old Latvian big man—otherwise, he wouldn't be the 14th rated player on a team almost certain to be in the lottery next year.
The Jazz agreed to take on Biedrins' expiring deal just to land draft picks as part of the trade that sent Denver's Andre Iguodala to Golden State.
Unless he dramatically improves on his numbers from last year—a whopping 2.9 rebounds and 0.5 points—this will be his first and last season in Utah.
13: Jerel McNeal
McNeal spent the majority of last season leading the D-League's Bakersfield Jam with 18.1 points and 5.5 assists a game.
The 6'3" guard was a big-time scorer in college as well and his production in the assist column with Bakersfield suggests that aspect of his game may be catching up.
With only two true point guards on the roster in Trey Burke and John Lucas III, McNeal may be able to sneak onto the floor a few times in 2013-14.
12: Ian Clark
After thriving for the Warriors' summer team, the Jazz signed 6'3" sharpshooter Ian Clark. He scored 33 points while hitting 7-10 from three-point range during the championship game of the tournament in Las Vegas—good enough for MVP honors.
Clark is one spot ahead of McNeal because his shooting range gives him the potential to contribute to a team that hasn't hit a ton of threes the last couple years.
He shot over 40 percent from downtown in each of his four years at Belmont, including a 46 percent senior season.
11: Rudy Gobert
Gobert earns this spot largely on intrigue. How can you not be curious to see what this 7'2" with a 7'9" wingspan center can do?
Summer league play gave us a look at some of the possibilities. He hit 10-of-19 from the field and blocked three shots on three different occasions.
Just like we saw in Orlando, the most Utah will probably get out of him as a rookie this year is dunks and blocks. But he looks more likely to back up Enes Kanter than Biedrins.
