The Utah Jazz obtained the draft rights to center Kyrylo Fesenko from the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for a 2007 second-round draft pick during the 2007 NBA Draft.

Fesenko is a 7-foot-1 center weighing 280 lbs. from the Ukraine. He signed a three-year contract with the Jazz in August 2007 and in 2010 signed a one-year deal, with the team making him an unrestricted free-agent during the summer of 2011.

During his four years with the Jazz, Fesenko has seen his scoring improve, even though his numbers are not all that impressive. What has been impressive about him has been his all-around development since joining the team as a rookie.

When called upon during the 2009-10 NBA Playoffs due to injuries to starters Mehmet Okur and Carlos Boozer, Fesenko started nine of the 10 games averaging 3.3 points and 3.9 rebounds per game in 18.1 minutes played.

These numbers are not going to jump out at you, but in terms of his basketball growth, Fesenko is going in the right direction. The four teams listed below are in need of a center, and due to the glaring demand for big men in the NBA, teams will have to closely evaluate every option before coming to a decision.

So, let’s see which teams should look at Kyrylo Fesenko more closely during free agency!
