Before trade gets final, we are back with another update regarding All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell.
The Jazz, who earlier this offseason claimed they had no plans to trade Mitchell, are currently considering offers for their best player. many in the league consider it is only a matter of time until he leaves and Utah decides to go on a comprehensive rebuilt.
For a long time, Donovan Mitchell has been personally interested in the New York Knicks. The New York Knicks just completed a string of draft night transactions that earned them three first-round picks, two in 2023 and one in 2025.
Given the price Utah is willing to pay for their star guard, these choices, it may be crucial in securing Donovan Mitchell before the 2022–23 season begins.
The three main assets the Utah Jazz seem to be asking for in return in a deal for Mitchell are Quentin Grimes, Obi Toppin, and Immanuel Quickley. The Miami Heat and Utah Jazz have also talked about potential trades. The Heat can trade away Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson, and two first-round picks.
The Utah Jazz are expected to remain patient while deciding Donovan Mitchell’s future by carefully considering all trade possibilities that may come their way. The only team in the league that can give the Utah Jazz what they want for All-Star Donovan Mitchell is the New York Knicks because they have a steep price for him and want to obtain a good amount of value in return. Utah does not currently appear to be prepared to lower their asking price.
It is important to monitor the Brooklyn Nets’ situation over the coming weeks because deals may easily be made that would bring Mitchell to Brooklyn depending on what happens with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. There is currently zero momentum on this front, therefore this situation should be treated with care.
