Donovan Mitchell is now in the spotlight with transactions this NBA offseason still underway. He and Kevin Durant were the hot topic but the three-time All-Star ended up being the only one after the former NBA Most Valuable Player came to an agreement with the Brooklyn Nets.

It should be noted that Mitchell moving to another team has hardly gained traction. He has been linked to the New York Knicks, Miami Heat and the Nets but getting a deal done is a bit complicated.

The Knicks have had initial discussions, something that went kaput after the Jazz asked too much to agree to a deal involving Mitchell. A new round of talks have reportedly begun but there remains no clarity if the second round of talks will gain ground.

As for the Brooklyn Nets, any deal involving Mitchell would have to include Ben Simmons. This is due to the Designated Rookie extension rule, the same one that was raised if the Miami Heat were to include Bam Adebayo in a trade for Kevin Durant.

Speaking of the Heat, the only way they can gain any ground in Mitchell trade talks if a third team were to be included. The reason behind this is because Miami does not have enough assets to get a straight deal for the 6-foot-1 guard with the Jazz.

Regardless, the only thing certain is that Utah reportedly has several deals on the table, Tony Jones of The Athletic reported.

Aside from the Knicks, all the pitches made to the Jazz are allegedly intriguing and worth pursuing. The said other offers could gain traction if the Knicks and the Jazz fail to come to terms in their latest round of talks involving Donovan Mitchell.

Finally and if no deal pushes through, Utah does not mind keeping Mitchell for the coming season. So unless a tempting offer crops up, it is likely that Mitchell will continue to don a Utah Jazz uniform for now.
