- Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell is enjoying the offseason.
- Mitchell headed to Citi Field and took batting practice with the New York Mets.
- Of course, Knicks fans went crazy with speculation after seeing Mitchell in the Big Apple.
The rumors will circulate for months regarding many NBA stars, including Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell.
The former Louisville star might be headed out of Utah sooner than later, and for years the New York Knicks have been a top option for Mitchell. Well, let those rumors kick off again.
On Thursday, Mitchell was seen at Citi Field taking batting practice with the Mets. Should we say more?

Of course, Mitchell would need to be traded from the Jazz, and Rudy Gobert is another Jazz player reportedly on the market.

This summer will be interesting in the NBA circles, and the Knicks should be one team desperate for a blockbuster move following a disappointing 2021-2022 campaign.
Could Mitchell be playing home games at Madison Square Garden next season? Who knows, but at the very least, these sweet hacks are surely going to kick the speculation into high gear.
