Only One Jazz Player Makes CBS Top 100 NBA List


SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz have one in all the least talented NBA rosters in response to CBS Sports top 100 player rankings list for the 2022-23 season.

On Tuesday, the outlet released its top 100 players list ahead of the 2022-23 NBA season, and just one Jazz player made the cut.

In line with CBS, Collin Sexton, who’s ranked 92nd, is one of the best player on the Jazz roster, but hardly qualifies as elite.

CBS Sports’ top 100 player rankings are here ahead of the 2022-23 season.

“Sexton will get a fresh start in Utah after being traded from Cleveland, where he became somewhat of a forgotten man due largely to the coinciding emergence of All-Star guard Darius Garland,” CBS’s Michael Kaskey-Blomain wrote.

“Sexton played in only 11 games last season after he tore his meniscus in November. The 12 months before that, though, Sexton averaged over 24 points and 4 assists per performance and was widely viewed as one in all the more promising young players within the NBA. In Utah, Sexton should again get the chance to supply at a high level for a Jazz team that now finds itself squarely within the midst of a rebuild, and in turn, remind the league at large just how good he’s.”

The Jazz acquired Sexton earlier this month together with Lauri Markkanen and rookie Ochai Agbaji in a blockbuster trade for Donovan Mitchell.

Last 12 months the Jazz had significantly more representation in the highest 100 before a disappointing first-round playoff exit which led to an overhaul of the team’s roster this summer.

In CBS Sports rankings last season Joe Ingles (80), Bojan Bogdanovic  (72), Mike Conley (45), Rudy Gobert (24), and Donovan Mitchell (20) all made the highest 100 list.

Sexton was ranked 76th by CBS Sports last season.

Ever because the dust settled on the Donovan Mitchell trade, one thing has been bugging me.

Why was Cleveland so lukewarm on Collin Sexton?

I asked @cavs beat author @ChrisFedor, and he offered terrific insight on the most recent @utahjazz guard. #TakeNote https://t.co/40T3p8ltL1

Now with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Gobert dropped from twenty fourth to twenty ninth in the highest 100 rankings, while Mitchell dipped to twenty second as the most recent member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo, Golden State’s Stephen Curry, Brooklyn’s Kevin Durant, Denver’s Nikola Jokic, and Dallas’s Luka Doncic make up the highest five players on this 12 months’s list.

Only the Orlando Magic, San Antonio Spurs, and Houston Rockets were left off the highest 100 list entirely.
