With the 24th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the Denver Nuggets select Tyler Lydon out of Syracuse after trading the No. 13 pick to the Utah Jazz.
Lydon, 21, averaged 13.2 points on 47.3 percent shooting from the field and 39.5 percent from three, to go with 8.6 rebounds in his sophomore season. The 6-foot-10 four-man shot 83.6 percent from the line in 36.1 minutes per game.
The All-ACC honorable as a sophomore, Lydon was one of 12 players on the 2014 USA U-18 National Team. Last year at Syracuse, Lydon scored a season-high 29 points against Georgetown and grabbed a season-high 15 rebounds against Georgia Tech.
In the middle of his second season in upstate New York, Lydon played 11 consecutive games, a stretch covering 450 minutes straight.
