Donovan Mitchell attended Chris Paul’s camp with Paul advising him to stay in the NBA Draft last June. “He’s actually, him and Paul George, are the main reasons why I’m here,” Mitchell said. “They told me I should definitely stay in the draft and had a big influence on my decision. Being at that camp, I learned a lot. He told me the game’s going to have to start slowing down before success is going to come. I worked out with him pretty much all summer, learned a lot.”
The Jazz have used Mitchell at both guard spots, working to bring him along as a point guard behind Ricky Rubio. “There’s a lot going on,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. “His development is going to continue. It’s happening at a pretty quick pace. I said before the season I don’t want to put a ceiling on it and bring him along slowly. But I also want to be conscious of the fact we’re asking a lot of a young guy. So that means being demanding of him and also being patient with him and understanding the growth process.”
