Point Forward. 30. . . Antwerp Giants. Vrenz Bleijenbergh. player. 118

With the 30th and final pick of the first round of the draft, the Utah Jazz select Vrenz Bleijenbergh.

Although I expect for this pick to be traded more so than any others, if the Jazz were to keep it, Bleijenbergh would be a fantastic choice. Many mocks, even up until recently, have had Bleijenbergh being selected in the second round, but I think he's well-deserving of a first-round selection.

Bleijenbergh stands at 6'10" with a reported 7'1" wingspan with the skillset of a playmaking wing. If that isn't enough, though, he shot 38% from three on nearly 5 attempts per game. While he has the size of a wing, I think he could be most useful in the NBA playing at the shooting guard spot.

Assuming he continues to put on muscle, he'll have a chance of becoming a three-level scoring threat and is capable of making plays for others in the pick and roll as well. If he's paired up with a lob threat like Rudy Gobert, I think he would be able to do a ton of damage in the league relatively soon.

Although the Spurs don't quite have a lob threat on the team yet (perhaps except Lonnie Walker), Bleijenbergh is yet another player that could do great things in San Antonio if paired with a high-flying big man.
