NBA Rumors: 6 Teams In The Mix With Knicks In Donovan Mitchell Chase

While the New York Knicks have gotten all the headlines on the Donovan Mitchell trade rumors front, according to Fred Katz of The Athletic, there are actually six other teams that are in the fray as realistic bidders for the Utah Jazz superstar.

Katz names the Washington Wizards, Miami Heat, Toronto Raptors, Charlotte Hornets, Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks as teams that have all expressed interest in trading for Mitchell.

As has been written about ad infinitum, the Jazz are looking for lots of first-round draft picks in return for Spida. Lots and lots of them. As many as six or more. But teams are hoping that by adding young proven NBA players to the mix, they can lessen the pick load. 

Some of the teams listed above wouldn't even have more than four first-rounders to make available to trade.

As well, of those six teams, the Heat and the Raptors are still supposedly involved in Kevin Durant trade talks, so any Mitchell exercise would have to wait until the KD drama plays out.
