2 Trade Packages To Send Donovan Mitchell To Magic

Donovan Mitchell, Orlando Magic, NBA Trade Rumors
NBA Analysis Network

Since Dwight Howard skipped town, the Orlando Magic have been thirsting for a new NBA superstar. While their brass hasn’t been terrible at drafting per se, they’ve failed to land a bona fide cornerstone so far.

Franz Wagner, Cole Anthony, and Jonathan Isaac all have the chance to become All-Stars one day, but the Orlando fanbase’s patience is running thin.

Magic general manager John Hammond may have to consider moving some of his young building blocks for an established star to accelerate their rebuild, and Donovan Mitchell might be the perfect target.

It’s no secret that Mitchell has one eye set on his future beyond the Utah Jazz. Spida and the New York Knicks have been intertwined in the league’s rumor mill since the young guard established himself as an elite offensive option in the NBA.

The Jazz hasn’t done much to quell those rumors on the court either. With each blown fourth-quarter lead, the Mitchell-Rudy Gobert pairing appears inches closer and closer to detonating.

If Utah flames out early in the playoffs again — especially in a similar fashion to years past — new executive Danny Ainge might face his first tough call sooner than expected: deciding between their explosive shot creator and their fearsome interior anchor.

With Mitchell’s desire to play in a bigger market made into the NBA’s worst-kept secret, Utah may decide that they’re best off trading him before he leaves in free agency. After all, the Jazz is the franchise that shipped out Deron Williams with little to no warning.

If Donovan Mitchell is made available this summer, the Orlando Magic might be able to craft the best package available for the young star.

There’s no doubt that his talent would be a welcome sight in Disney World, a city that hasn’t experienced that level of guard play since Penny Hardaway suited up in the pinstripes.
