While many rookies may have their eyes set on an All-Star appearance, the Rookie of the Year Award, or other similar accolades in their first NBA season, Utah Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell is set on a different goal. Speaking on Saturday at a demo for “NBA Live 18,” Mitchell said that his goal for his rookie season is to make First Team All-Defense. Mitchell, who was selected by the Jazz No. 13 overall in this year’s draft, did lead the ACC with 2.1 steals per game last season at Louisville and finished third in the conference in defensive win shares, per Basketball Reference.
