After Kevin Durant, while the outcome of his soap opera is still far away, it is now Donovan Mitchell who embraces the canvas. The rear is of course the start of the Jazz, with its preference already known. Is an agreement possible? We should know more in the coming days, but a trade is preparing well in Salt Lake City.
It’s a page that turns on the Jazz side, even a book that closes. After years of struggling for the title, Utah is heading for a major rebuild. Quin Snyder has jumped ship, Rudy Gobert has been sent to Wolves, while Donovan Mitchell could be next on the list. As confirmed by Shams Charania, negotiations have begun for his departure, with an already preferred franchise.
Heading East for Donovan Mitchell?
But when such a star is available, one can be sure that the competition is not asked very far. This is the case for Spida, which will arouse interest. He is seen as the future of the league, even if he will have to confirm this new status in the playoffs. In the meantime, we may well know his preference. In a tweet shared this Wednesday evening, Mitchell was spotted wearing a sweater that read New York, but not only.

Impossible to confirm this exchange obviously, but we can say that the game of rumors started. Mitchell in New York? It should be remembered that this is not the first time that this idea has emerged.
Note that the tweet was almost confirmed by the player himself, with a message shared a few hours later:

Tweet confirmed. He just got off the plane.
Mitchell: “The standing ovation when the pilot successfully lands the plane…and then sprints out the door, it’s outrageous 😂”
Donovan Mitchell was on a plane, which means the photo is recent. Enough to confirm the suspicions of a visit to the Knicks, even if the franchise has yet to find an agreement with the Jazz. And given the consideration requested, it is not won.
