Donovan Mitchell has changed his address. And it’s not even in New York.
Donovan Mitchell, an All-Star guard, was allegedly moved by the Jazz to the Cavs on Thursday in return for Sexton, Markkanen, Agbaji, three round 1 picks, and two swap picks.
Donovan Mitchell Spinning His Web
Who benefited from the trade now that everything is cleared and Donovan Mitchell will start spinning his yarn in the East? Who have made the most loss here? It is now time to conjecture.
Mock draughts in Utah are the winners.
The Jazz will need to establish a new facility to accommodate all of the round one selections and swaps they’ve collected this summer.
Utah obtained 4 future first-round selections and one pick swap from the Timberwolves earlier this offseason in return for Gobert.
The Jazz obtained three unprotected round 1 selections and two pick swaps in Thursday’s “Spida” trade. Utah currently possesses rights to thirteen round one choices (including three possible trades) through NBA Draft in 2029.
The sale in Salt Lake City is also likely not over. The Jazz still has Bogdanovic, Clarkson, Conley, and Beasley available for trade before deadline day arrives.
Jazz fans may want to save Tankathon as their home page.
Loser: The New York Knicks
Donovan Mitchell looked destined for New York ahead of the offseason.
During the first Game of Utah Jazz’s series against the Mavericks, All-Star Randle and two executives from the Knicks reportedly irritated Utah’s front staff by sitting courtside. Mitchell has long supported the New York Mets, but trade speculations resurfaced last summer when he arrived for a Citi Field game.
However, trade discussions between the Jazz and the Knicks are said to have fallen through.
According to ESPN’s Wojnarowski, who cited sources, New York failed “to add Quentin Grimes into a deal with Barrett” on Monday, allowing the Cavs to slip in and grab the “Spida.”
