The Utah Jazz had another disappointing end to the 2021-22 season, failing to make it past the first round for the third time in four years.
On July 1, the Jazz traded three-timer Rudy Gobert in a massive deal to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The move signaled that a fire sale may be afoot in Utah, and the team’s other three-star, Donovan Mitchell, would be the next to be dealt.
However, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Utah turned down teams that inquired about Mitchell.
“They shut down every team that called to try and trade for Mitchell,” Wojnarowski said. “The Jazz are committed to moving forward with him as a benchmark player.”
