Who Will Land Donovan Mitchell? Knicks Lead List Of Favorites

LOS ANGELES - JUN 26: Donovan Mitchell arrives for the 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' World Premiere on June 26, 2019 in Hollywood, CA


Donovan Mitchell could be on the move with reports indicating the Utah Jazz are open to trading the NBA superstar. There was immediately plenty of speculation on where Mitchell could land and potential trade partners for the Jazz.

Some reports linked Mitchell to the Miami Heat, who could offer a package of Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson, and picks, but another team has emerged as the odds-on favorite.

According to the oddsmakers, the New York Knicks are the heavy favorite to make a trade for Mitchell, who was born in New York and grew up playing AAU basketball for The City and Riverside Hawks programs in New York City. His father, Donovan Sr., also served as a director of player relations for the New York Mets.

During the 2022 NBA Draft, the Knicks made plenty of moves to free up cap space and land an arsenal of picks that they could package together with a promising player like RJ Barrett. So on paper, the Knicks have plenty to offer and the oddsmakers seem to like their chances.
