Jazz Trade For No. 39 Pick

The Utah Jazz have acquired the No. 39 pick from the New Orleans Pelicans, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Utah then drafted Elijah Hughes with the pick.

In exchange, the Jazz sent a 2021 second-round pick and cash to the Pels, Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

By trading for the No. 39 pick, Utah effectively bought back into the draft after trading away the No. 38 pick to the Detroit Pistons earlier in the evening.

Hughes averaged 19.0 points per game in his final NCAA season with the Syracuse Orange.
