Utah Jazz star talks about Devonte’ Graham, the Charlotte Hornets guard who is averaging 19.2 points and 7.4 assist per game in his second NBA season:
“That’s a Devonte that I have known for my whole life,” Mitchell said. “He’s a kid that steps up and wants the clutch moment and wants everything. And he’s going to go get out there and get it. I think he really deserves the Most Improved Player. To do what he’s doing, it’s really unmatched.”
The guard out of Kansas as a rookie played just 14 minutes per game, with averages of 4.7 points and 2.6 assist.
