NBA Free Agency 2014: Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks still need wingmen

I embrace going young, but balance is still needed. A number of years ago the Utah Jazz took a dip into the bottom half of the NBA Draft, two years in a row. They were able to get Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks. Both are good, young players with obvious talents. Sadly, the largest splash either of them have made came from Free Agency this year when Hayward became a Max player. Utah seems to have made another smart draft pick this past year with scooping up the overlooked Rodney Hood. When the season starts Hayward will be 24, Burks 23, and Hood 22. And you know what? They can't do it all...
