With the 11th overall pick in the 1991 GAH draft, the New Orleans Jazz select Rick Fox from North Carolina.
The 6'7" and 230 lbs forward can actually play both the two and three spots, and will give the Jazz more options on the court. With veteran T.R. Dunn becoming a free agent, Fox could start at the two for the Jazz next season, alongside Kenny Smith, John Williams, Tyrone Hill and Manute Bol. A solid defender who can shoot the ball, Fox seems to be a good fit in New Orleans. The Jazz surprised many people last season by getting into the playoffs, and they hope to keep growing as a team next season.
