3 New Trades To Send Donovan Mitchell To New York Knicks

Donovan Mitchell, Utah Jazz, NBA Trade Rumors
NBA Analysis Network
Utah Jazz Receive: G Evan Fournier, G/F RJ Barrett, 2023 First-Round Pick (NYK)
New York Knicks Receive: G Donovan Mitchell

In essence, this deal swaps RJ Barrett and a first-round pick for Donovan Mitchell. Evan Fournier is strictly included here to make the salaries match.

Whether the Utah Jazz are interested will depend on their assessment of Barrett. By all means, the former number three pick has established a floor in this league. He’s already a productive player and will continue to be so.

On the other hand, his ceiling is in question. The Knicks have been waiting for Barrett to take a leap, and it’s hard to say whether or not he will.

If the Jazz think he can, this would be fair value for a star player who’s angling to get out of town anyway.
