With the 13th pick in the 2017 NBA draft, the Denver Nuggets select Donovan Mitchell from LOUISVILLE. Mitchell, a lottery pick, was then traded to Utah for the 24th pick and Trey Lyles. Mitchell played just 2 seasons at Louisville where he averaged 15.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists in his final collegiate season. He shot 35.4% from 3 and 45.6% from 2. The 6’3″ sophomore came into the draft projected as a late first-rounder, but through workouts he managed to climb his way into the lottery.
