Donovan Mitchell has been one of the biggest surprises this year in the NBA. He was selected with the 13th pick in the 2017 NBA draft by the Denver Nuggets before being traded to the Utah Jazz. He has been the best rookie in the NBA over the last month or two and has helped lead the Jazz to ten straight wins. He has also been climbing up the rookie ranks in the Jazz record book, and now sits in solo first place in one category. According to HoopsHype, Mitchell’s 17.0 player efficiency rating is the highest of any Jazz rookie in history, besting the likes of Deron Williams along with the legendary tandem of John Stockton and Karl Malone.
