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

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) When Donovan Mitchell worked out for the Jazz in May, Utah general manager Dennis Lindsey told the Louisville guard that he would be long gone by the time the franchise picked at No. 24 in the draft. So Lindsey went to work Thursday night and made a draft-day trade like he has every year since taking over the program.

The Jazz traded the No. 24 pick and forward Trey Lyles to the Denver Nuggets for the No. 13 pick, Mitchell. The Nuggets received Syracuse forward Tyler Lydon, taken with the No. 24 pick.

"Lot of conversations," Lindsey said. "There's just certain programs you get great chemistry with and we've always had great communications with Denver. That came together where there were multiple bites at the apple that they had interest in Trey. We targeted a few players. Donovan was one of those guys in a big way because of his length and athleticism and his character."
