Donovan Mitchell is one of the best young shooting guards in the NBA, being a fantastic three-level scorer that can shoulder the offensive load for a franchise. He had a productive season with the Utah Jazz, averaging 25.9 PPG, 4.2 RPG, and 5.3 APG.
This offseason, Donovan Mitchell, has been part of many trade rumors. There was notably a report from Adrian Wojnarowski that revealed that the Utah Jazz are willing to listen to trade offers for the All-Star shooting guard.
After previously shutting down inquiries on moving All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell, rival teams say the Utah Jazz are showing a willingness to listen on possible trade scenarios, sources tell ESPN.
The asking price appears to be steep, but in the wake of Utah’s recent Rudy Gobert blockbuster deal to Minnesota, the Jazz are no longer simply dismissing calls on Mitchell, sources said.
Though the Utah Jazz may be listening to trade offers for their star, it seems as though Donovan Mitchell has not actively been forcing a trade from the team. Brian Windhorst revealed that Donovan Mitchell is "not pushing" for a trade currently.
"The Donovan Mitchell situation is really headed towards a stalemate... Donovan Mitchell is not pushing it so I hope everybody enjoys their summer."
It remains to be seen where Donovan Mitchell will end up in the future. He has most commonly been connected to the Miami Heat, but there have been other suitors as well, such as the New York Knicks.
Hopefully, we see Donovan Mitchell land on a franchise where he has a legitimate chance to win a championship. Mitchell is a difference-maker for any team on the offensive end of the floor. While there has been a lot of speculation about Donovan Mitchell getting traded, it doesn't look as though there will be a move any time soon.
