Lyles signed a two-year deal with San Antonio ahead of the 2019-20 campaign. He went on to appear in all 63 of the Spurs' games before the season went on pause, making a career-high 53 starts in the process. The fifth-year forward averaged 6.4 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.0 three-pointers, 0.4 steals and 0.4 blocks in 18.4 minutes per game. On Nov. 1, Lyles set a career high with 14 rebounds versus the Warriors; he matched that total Jan. 4 against the Bucks. His first of two double-doubles occurred Feb. 6 at Portland, when he totaled a season-high 23 points -- including 4-of-6 three-point shooting -- to accompany 10 rebounds and two steals. On Mar. 10, the 6-foot-9 forward recorded his second double-double with 14 points, 10 rebounds, four three-pointers, two assists, a block and a steal in a home win over the Mavericks. Lyles shot a career-high 73.3 percent from the charity stripe and drained 38.7 percent of his three-point attempts. He finished the season ranked third on the Spurs in total made threes (65), tied for fourth in blocks (28), and eighth in minutes played (1,271). Lyles missed the restart of the 2019-20 season in the Orlando bubble due to appendicitis.2018
In his second season with the Nuggets, Lyles was once again a valuable reserve. He appeared in 64 games, only twice as a starter. It was par for the course for the Kentucky product, who started two games the year prior as well, and four games in his final season with the Jazz. Lyles averaged 17.5 minutes per contest. He made 41.8 percent of his field goals, 25.5 percent of his three-point shots and 69.8 percent of his free throws. Overall, he averaged 8.5 points per game in the regular season. The high point of his campaign came in a November win over the Magic. He scored 22 points in 18 minutes on 9-for-15 shooting. In the playoffs, Lyles fell out of the rotation. He appeared in three games and averaged 2.7 minutes per contest.2017
After two seasons with Utah, Lyles was traded to the Denver Nuggets in June of 2017. The move was a positive one for the forward as he averaged a career-high 19.1 minutes across 73 games. Lyles posted a number of career-best marks over the course of the regular season. His 9.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game were all career highs. He also knocked down a career-high 1.1 three-pointers per game, making 38.1 percent of his attempts from deep. The University of Kentucky product converted 49.1 percent of his field-goal attempts, easily surpassing his previous season-best mark. He logged a career-high six double-doubles during the campaign, doubling his total from his first two seasons combined. Among those performances was a 23-point, 10-rebound effort against Minnesota on Dec. 27. Lyles made a career-high five three-pointers en route to a career-high 25 points against Indiana on Dec. 10. He topped that scoring output with a career-high 26 points against his former team, the Utah Jazz, on Jan. 5, adding seven rebounds and two steals in the victory.2016
In his sophomore campaign, Lyles produced numbers similar to those of his rookie season. He played in 71 games for Utah, averaging 16.3 minutes per contest. Lyles' 6.2 points per game narrowly eclipsed his rookie average. He also posted per-game averages of 3.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.3 blocks. The 6-foot-9 forward shot 36.2 percent from the field and 72.2 percent from the free-throw line. He was selected to participate in the Rising Stars Challenge during the All-Star Break for the second straight season, tallying seven points and two assists for Team World. On Nov. 19, Lyles scored a season-high 21 points while grabbing five rebounds against Houston. He notched his only double-double of the campaign six days later, scoring 13 points and collecting 10 boards in a win over Atlanta. Lyles got into the first two postseason games of his career in Utah's first-round playoff series against Golden State. In the two contests, he totaled seven points, two rebounds, an assist and a steal.2015
Lyles was selected by the Utah Jazz with the 12th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. He played in 80 games during his rookie campaign, making 33 starts and averaging 17.3 minutes per contest. The 6-foot-9 forward played limited minutes at the start of the season. However, his playing time jumped when he took on a temporary starting role in early December. Overall, Lyles posted per-game averages of 6.1 points and 3.7 rebounds. He shot 43.8 percent from the field and 69.5 percent from the charity stripe. Lyles scored a season-high 22 points and knocked down a season-high four three-pointers in a win over Denver on April 10. He registered two double-doubles during the campaign, including an 18-point, 11-rebound effort against the Lakers on April 13 during which he collected a season-high five steals.
