With the 18th pick of the 1995 draft, the Salt Lake City Jazz select ...
Forward Mario Bennett from Arizona State.
The Jazz are excited to snag Mario, who they believe can be a contributing member of their lineup. With only one power forward on the roster, the Jazz have relied on double-center lineup. But with Bennett joining J.R. Reid at the post, the Jazz should have more depth and perhaps a long-term starter at the position. Of course, there's harder ways to join the NBA than standing next to David Robinson in the post, and the Jazz hope that his veteran presence will ease the young man into the league.
