Nuggets select Donovan Mitchell, send him to Jazz

DENVER (AP) The Nuggets selected Louisville guard Donovan Mitchell with the No. 13 pick in the NBA draft Thursday night but he won't be suiting up for Denver.

The Utah Jazz traded the No. 24 pick and forward Trey Lyles to the Nuggets for the rights to Mitchell. The Jazz then selected Syracuse forward Tyler Lydon with the No. 24 pick.

Lydon led Syracuse in rebounding (8.6 per game) and ranked second in scoring (13.2 points per game) last season and brings another physical presence to the Nuggets' front court.
