Utah Radio Host Says Donovan Mitchell Trade Will Be Announced Soon


Thursday, Patrick Kinahan on The Zone Sports Network, reported that a trade for Utah Jazz All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell has been ” Okay “.

Kinahan: “I’ve been getting texts as we speak saying the Donovan Mitchell deal is done, it’s agreed. That they have to do it, they’re working out the final details so it’ll be announced here shortly .”

Kinahan didn’t specify which team he would also lead, but the two most reported teams interested in Mitchell are the New York Knicks and Miami Heat.

On July 12, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel: “I spoke to a Western Conference scout today here in Vegas about Donovan Mitchell. He said he heard Heat expressing interest. The longtime scout said that he would move Herro in such a deal. (Robinson, picks should come out as well.)”

On July 13, Shams Charania and Tony Jones also reported that the Knicks and Jazz had discussions.

Sharania: “The Jazz and Knicks have entered into trade discussions with Donovan Mitchell, sources tell me and @Tjonesonthenba. New York is currently focused on Utah as an interested team.”

Kinahan seemed to backtrack on his bold report a bit during a later part of the segment.

Kinahan: “I’m just reporting some information, I’m not reporting it’s done, but it’s going to be done. This isn’t breaking news, is it?”

However, he still signals that a deal will be done.

Mitchell and the Jazz lost in the first round of the NBA Playoffs to the Dallas Mavericks.
