New total twist in the Donovan Mitchell soap opera!

A time quoted on the departure of the Jazz a few weeks ago, Donovan Mitchell has not been much talked about recently. Utah is confident about keeping him, even if the franchise is open to discussions, with the Knicks for example. The franchise showed interest, to the point that negotiations resumed a month away from training camp.

After Rudy Gobert or Royce O’Neale, Jazz may be preparing to part ways with Donovan Mitchell in the next weeks. Everything will depend on negotiations with several interested franchises, including the Wizards, the Hornets, but especially the Knicks. The latter are the big favorites with multiple assets at their disposal, but it is not known if the front office is ready to do what is necessary to recruit Spida.

Donovan Mitchell back at the center of rumors!

Knowing that Utah is not looking to move the star, it will be necessary to make a significant offer to hope to change the dynamic. We know that the two parties discussed in July to find an agreement, before cutting off contact for weeks according to Shams Charania. But for those who were hoping for a trade, good news, the leaders have decided to resume discussions.

After several weeks without contact for Donovan Mitchell, the Knicks and the Jazz resumed discussions for a trade concerning Spida. They had a recent discussion on Mitchell, although no major breakthroughs occurred. A trade is far from imminent according to sources. Note that the Hornets and Wizards have also shown interest in the player.

The Knicks have made it clear they are very interested in Mitchell, according to a source familiar with the matter. The Knicks and Jazz discussed the subject in July during the Summer League, but negotiations stalled for a month, with no activity on either side. Now that training camp is a month away, both sides have decided to resume those talks.

That does not mean that a trade will succeed, but we feel that the Knicks want to do what is necessary to complete this coming, without having any regrets afterwards. On the player side, no worries according to Charania:

Utah has set the bar high for a possible trade for Mitchell, who is comfortable leaving the franchise or staying another season, regardless of the outcome. The Jazz are also ready to keep him for this campaign, or even the following ones.

Donovan Mitchell can leave the Jazz in the coming weeks, but it’s not an obligation either. The franchise is not against keeping him, just like the player, who lets the two teams negotiate quietly. We are waiting to find out if the Knicks are ready to do anything to recruit him, because they only have a month to do so.
