The Miami Heat made an offer to the Utah Jazz for Donovan Mitchell, but the Jazz turned it down as ‘insufficient’.
“As [Jazz general manager Justin] Zanik hinted, Mitchell’s status with the Jazz might then be determined by what other teams are offering for him — if the Jazz got a return that made them more likely to be a championship team, they’d do the deal,” wrote Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune.
“According to a league source, one offer came from Miami even before the Gobert trade was finalized. The Jazz, though, found that offer insufficient. In addition, Miami’s win-now roster has limited picks and young players to trade,” Larsen added.
The Jazz have no plans to trade Donovan Mitchell after trading Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves several days ago. Donovan Mitchell has four years and $135M left on his current contract with the Jazz.
