Once projected as a potential lottery pick, Bronny's draft stock has fallen due to a heart condition that affected his preparation and performance during his lone college season.

Despite this setback, there is still significant interest in the 19-year-old from several NBA teams, including the Utah Jazz.

According to Yahoo Sports' Krysten Peek, the Jazz are intrigued by Bronny and are considering bringing him in for an individual workout.
