SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz took forward Taurean Prince with the No. 12 selection in the NBA draft on Thursday but will move the pick to the Atlanta Hawks.
The Jazz were involved in a three-way trade that sent the pick to the Hawks and brought former Indiana Pacers guard George Hill to Utah. The Pacers received Indianapolis native Jeff Teague from the Hawks.
While the deal cannot be announced officially, Hill's agent, Bill Neff, confirmed the details.
Prince averaged 15.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists as a Baylor senior. He was named 2016 All-Big 12 first team. Prince won the 2015 Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year award.
