After the Utah Jazz traded Tony Bradley and the 38th pick in Wednesday’s NBA draft to the Detroit Pistons for future considerations, it appeared they would have no more selections following their selection at No. 27 of Udoka Azubuike.

However, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Jazz will acquire the 39th pick, Syracuse wing Elijah Hughes, from the New Orleans Pelicans.

ESPN’s Andrew Lopez reported that the Jazz will send a future pick in exchange for the 6-foot-6, 215-pound Hughes, who averaged exactly 19 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists last season for Syracuse.
