The Denver Nuggets have traded the No. 13 pick to the Utah Jazz, for the No. 24 pick and Trey Lyles.

Lyles, 21, was the No. 12 overall pick in the 2015 draft out of the University of Kentucky. Last season for the Jazz, Lyles averaged 6.2 points on 36.2 percent shooting from the field and 31.9 percent from three, to go with 3.3 rebounds per game.

Sitting at No. 13, with a loaded rotation, the Nuggets opted to trade back and pick up an additional pick, along with a versatile power forward in Lyles.

More to come…
