NBA Rumors: One Team Pulls Out Of Donovan Mitchell Trade Talks

As the Utah Jazz turn up the heat on getting a Donovan Mitchell deal done, one Eastern Conference team has pulled the plug on its talks with Danny Ainge and Co.

According to NBA Insider Ian Begley, the Cleveland Cavaliers, a late-comer to the discussions, have pulled out of trade talks. Which once again leaves the New York Knicks, as Begley notes, as the team to beat in the Mitchell sweepstakes.

And fellow Insider Brian Windhorst thinks something will get done, with the Knicks, sooner than later.

“It does sound as I talk to folks in the league that the Jazz are trying to apply the gas here. To try to juice the offer, especially juice the offer from the New York Knicks," said Windhorst on his Hoop Collective podcast. 

It's thought that the Jazz want to get a deal done before the opening of training camp about a month from now.
