Donovan Mitchell Trade Rumors: How the RJ Barrett Extension Impacts Donovan Mitchell

One of the biggest storylines of the offseason has been Donovan Mitchell and the New York Knicks. For a while there, it felt inevitable as the Knicks had both the assets and the interest in acquiring the young star from the Utah Jazz.

Well, last night the Knicks decided to extend RJ Barrett to a four-year $120 million extension which might complicate some things for the pursuit of Donovan Mitchell.

Donovan Mitchell Trade Rumors

Reports indicate that the New York Knicks set a deadline of Monday night for the Utah Jazz to reach an agreement on a trade before the Knicks would commit to RJ. It doesn't 100% take them out of the running to land Mitchell but it does make things much more complicated.

With the Knicks potentially out, who will be next in line to land Donovan Mitchell?

Well, perhaps the Miami Heat could be interested. It will be dependent on how they view Tyler Herro. If they're looking for an upgrade, Mitchell is surely that but there are a lot of people in that organization who still value him it seems.

The Toronto Raptors are another team who could benefit from the help of Donovan Mitchell. With Kevin Durant and the Nets smoothing things over, the Raptors could pivot and go for the next available option, even if there is a drop off in skill between those two.

We will have to keep a close eye on this one as the rumors for Donovan Mitchell are likely to begin to swirl after the New York Knicks got aggressive and gave their guy a longterm contract extension.
