The Jazz remain "very active" in trying to trade for or move up to draft a shooter who can make an immediate impact on the roster, sources told the Deseret News. A person with direct knowledge of the deal says the Jazz traded the No. 30 and No. 42 picks to the Los Angeles Lakers for the No. 28 pick, North Carolina forward Tony Bradley.

Mitchell was a standout sophomore guard under head coach Rick Pitino at Louisville, averaging 15.6 points and two steals per game.

"His elite athleticism, length and game give him a passing resemblance to a young Dwyane Wade", ESPN analyst Chad Ford said of Mitchell ahead of the draft. He was the West Coast Conference player of the year and newcomer of the year last season after transferring from Washington.

Shot selection and consistency are the two biggest areas he needs to improve, Mitchell said. I think I can do both.

Lydon led Syracuse in rebounding (8.6 per game) and ranked second in scoring (13.2 points per game) last season, bringing another physical presence to the Nuggets' front court. He played in only 71 games and started just four. The 19-year-old averaged 7.1 points and 5.1 rebounds in 14.6 minutes an outing for the Tar Heels, but his advanced stats and size are much more impressive, Lindsey noted. "Guys are going to guard Gordon and George Hill". "I'd love to play with a star like that, I'd love to learn from a guy like him".

There is, of course, value to be had in later picks, as Jazz fans should be aware of considering they have unearthed gems such as Rudy Gobert with picks in the 20s.
