The organization signed Lewis Tuesday to be a part of training camp, but the details of those negotiations were not released. He was part of the team’s Summer League roster this season and he discussed with the Deseret News in July of the irony of coming to Utah with Mitchell.
“I give him stuff all the time about that because he came in as a freshman while I was a senior at Louisville,” Lewis said, laughing. “I was the guy showing him the ropes and now he’s teaching me drills in here, so it’s always funny how life works and how things come around, so it’s awesome.”
