Utah made the selection with the pick, but traded it to Denver in a deal that involved Louisville guard Donovan Mitchell.
In his sophomore season at SU, he averaged 13.2 points and a team-high 8.6 rebounds in 36.1 minutes per game. He was named an All-ACC Honorable Mention.
It is the sixth year in a row that the Orange has had a first round pick. The Nuggets finished 40-42 in the 2016-17 season, missing the playoffs.
