Donovan Mitchell Next Team Odds: New York Knicks Overwhelming Favorite to Trade for Mitchell
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the New York Knicks and Utah Jazz have begun discussions on a Donovan Mitchell trade. The odds have shifted even further in the Knicks' direction to get a deal done for Mitchell. We have a breakdown of the latest Donovan Mitchell trade odds here.
Donovan Mitchell Next Team Odds
|-200||New York Knicks||66.7%|
|+1800||Los Angeles Lakers||5.3%|
Donovan Mitchell has three more guaranteed years remaining on his five-year, $163 million contract. The deal also includes a $37.1 million player option for 2025-26. The team that trades for Mitchell will acquire a superstar locked in under contract.
New York Knicks (-200)
The New York Knicks were the odds-on favorites to land Donovan Mitchell yesterday, and with last night's reports, oddsmakers are beginning to believe it is a sure thing. According to oddsmakers, the Knicks have a 66% chance to trade for the All-Star.
Many believe Utah's asking price would likely include 22-year-old RJ Barrett, but the Knicks may be able to retain Barrett and still trade for Mitchell. In the latest reports, Barrett is left out of trade discussions. Instead, the name mentioned is second-year guard Quentin Grimes, who has been outstanding in the Las Vegas Summer League. A package of Grimes, Obi Toppin, Immanuel Quickley, and draft picks may get the trade completed.
The Knicks have the draft capital to get a deal done with Utah potentially. They could have up to seven first-round picks between 2023-25, including four picks in 2023 alone. Reports are suggesting Utah is looking to compile draft capital, so there might be a world where the Knicks can retain Barrett if they send a plethora of draft picks to the Jazz in a trade for Donovan Mitchell.
