Utah National Guard enlists Donovan Mitchell for April Fools’ Day joke

SALT LAKE CITY — Donovan Mitchell is going from shooting guard to the National Guard, or at least that’s what a tweet on April Fools’ Day briefly claimed.

The Utah National Guard tweeted a “press release” Monday stating the Utah Jazz star was enlisting as part of an effort to be a new person for the new year.

“The former Louisville player will be enlisting as a cannon crewmember (MOS 13B) for his love of teamwork and shooting,” another tweet read.

The tweets included more serious hash tags like #AlwaysReady and #CitizenSoldier, along with the more lighthearted #AprilFools to let everyone know the announcement was clearly in jest.
