Although the New York Knicks have been mentioned as the top spot for Donovan Mitchell, no deal has progressed. Hence, this means that other NBA teams may still have a shot if they can offer something tempting to the Utah Jazz.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, several other NBA teams have now joined the Donovan Mitchell sweepstakes.

Charania mentioned teams such as the Washington Wizards, Miami Heat, Toronto Raptors, Charlotte Hornets, Sacramento Kings and the Atlanta Hawks as other teams allegedly in pursuit of the 25-year-old shooting guard.

Suggestions of a potential Mitchell trade cropped up following the deal involving Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Jazz is at least willing to listen to offers although it will likely have to be an astronomical one to see the three-time All-Star change zip codes.

Utah is unlikely to rush into a trade unless they get a good haul. But with multiple NBA teams allegedly interested, something could give soon.

If not a straight-up trade, Mitchell could be dealt with using a multi-team scenario. Anything is possible and should the number of teams interested in the 6-foot-1 guard continue to grow, the likelihood of seeing him move to another team increases by the day.

As for the Knicks, Ian Begley of SNY suggests that it would take a multitude of picks to get it done. However and considering that there are money matters on the table, New York may have to include some current players like Derrick Rose or RJ Barrett to make it work.

If not Rose and/or Barrett, other names the Knicks could offer include Evan Fournier, Cam Reddish or even Miles McBride aside from multiple future picks.

Interested teams are likely aware that they need to involve picks. But the tricky part is which active players, mostly established stars, these teams would have to involve.
