The Utah Jazz have selected Duke center Kyle Filipowski with the 32nd overall pick of the 2024 NBA draft on Thursday afternoon.

On the second day of the draft, the Jazz used the second pick of the second round to add the 6-foot-11 sophomore center to their roster. Though he has the height of a center, Filipowski is also able to handle the ball and play off the dribble and shoot from distance.
