The Utah Jazz are reportedly okay with the idea of trading away Donovan Mitchell.

It is true that just a few months ago they said there was no way they would get rid of their star player but a lot changed when they made a deal to send Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Since then, most rumors have said the Jazz will give up Mitchell but only if they receive an offer that is too good to pass up.

The latest intel from Stephen A. Smith suggests that any offer will have to be massive.

Smith says that the Jazz have been talking with the New York Knicks and are interested in RJ Barrett but not just Barrett.

Utah also wants six first-round draft picks, which sounds ridiculous on its face.

Even more ridiculous is the fact that Knicks are apparently okay with giving up four or even five first-rounders for Mitchell.

The Jazz want a lot for Mitchell – and it sounds like the Knicks might be on board with giving it to them.

 

Mitchell Moving

The Jazz are not going to do anything unless all of the pieces come together.

This is what happened with Gobert and they received a huge number of draft picks from the Timberwolves.

The Jazz know they have the upper hand here: they can accept a monster trade package for Mitchell or they can just sit back and do nothing and keep him around for a bit longer.

Either way, the Jazz will be happy with what they have.

As for the Knicks, they are downright desperate to erase the damage done last season and turn things around.

They see Mitchell as a key way to do that.

That means they might give up a king’s ransom to get him.
