Key Facts

  • Donovan Mitchell might not play for the Utah Jazz this upcoming season, but chances are, it won't because he was traded to the New York Knicks.
  • According to reports, the Knicks agreed to a 4-year, $120 million extension with soon-to-be fourth-year guard RJ Barrett in the wee hours of Tuesday morning, all but nixing a potential trade that would land Mitchell in New York.
  • New York's pursuit of Mitchell has consistently made headlines this offseason, as the Knicks and Jazz worked to move closer to a blockbuster swap that would bring "Spida" back to his home state.
  • The Knicks also made some history for their franchise when it came to extending Barrett, as he became the organization's first draft pick to agree to a multi-year extension in 23 years.
