Markkanen, a former top-10 pick, was once a highly touted prospect with the Chicago Bulls before joining Cleveland in 2021. However, in a crowded frontcourt, the 7-footer struggled to find consistent playing time at his natural position of power forward. He'll look to get more of those opportunities in a wide open Jazz roster in 2022.
