The Denver Nuggets traded their 13th pick to the Utah Jazz in return for Trey Lyles and the 24th pick. That 13th pick would be used by the Jazz on Louisville product, Donovan Mitchell.

As for the Nuggets they would use their newly acquired 24th pick on Tyler Lydon from Syracuse.

The 6’10” stretch four is a perfect for the Nuggets as they may be losing Danilo Gallinari this summer. If so, Lydon should be able to earn himself some decent minutes off the bench, even in a crowded front court.

Stretching the Floor

The former Syracuse stud is athletic with a good touch around the rim. His shooting remains his strongest aspect. He shot 39.8% from three in his two years at Syracuse. His averages of 13.2 points and 8.6 rebounds in his sophomore season show promise that he will be an effective pro.

Only time will tell but for the time being it seems like the Nuggets made the right move here. Adding Lyles on top of a solid pick gives them even more assets to work with. Now, Denver has added two stretch bigs to a team that needed size to go with its’ shooting.
