Jazz trade with Nuggets to get No. 13 pick Donovan Mitchell

Jazz trade with Nuggets to get No. 13 pick Donovan Mitchell

The Denver Nuggets have traded the No. 13 pick to the Utah Jazz, for the No. 24 pick and Trey Lyles. The pick was made by the Nuggets, but the Jazz will receive Mitchell.

Lyles averaged 6.1 points per game as a rookie with Utah while shooting 44 percent from the floor and 38 percent from 3-point range.

This story will be updated. Donovan was 1st team All-ACC as a sophomore. "I'd love to play with a star like that, I'd love to learn from a guy like him". The Jazz were the first team Mitchell worked out for and they wanted to get a shooter who can play defense.

Lyles was a disappointment in his second season with the Jazz. The 19-year old averaged an impressive 19.5 points and 14.1 rebounds per 40 minutes as a freshman playing behind Kennedy Meeks and Isaiah Hicks. "I can learn the offensive part as I go through the league". He's only 21, the same age as numerous guys who went (in the draft Thursday).

Shot selection and consistency are the two biggest areas he needs to improve, Mitchell said. He's also seen enough of Jokic, both as a teammate five years ago and then as opponent, to know he's eager to play alongside Denver's pass-by-nature center. He averaged 13.7 points last season but saw his minutes and shooting percentages drop dramatically from 2015-16. According to Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post, the only scenario where Charlotte would not end up with Mitchell is if a team ahead of the Hornets in the top 10 beats them to the punch.

Previously, teams would either have to take a gamble on second-round players (or free agents) and sign them to a partially guaranteed contract or send them to Europe in a draft-and-stash scenario to preserve their National Basketball Association rights.
