However that may not prevent rival groups from making a run at the three-time All-Star.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski announced Friday the Jazz are exchanging Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Ian Begley of SNY followed up to report "a few groups actually view Mitchell as feasible for the right return."

ESPN's Brian Windhorst additionally said on NBA Today a few leaders beyond Utah "figure

 It would be strange for Donovan not to need out."

He added groups are "firing up the chance of considering Utah and seeing what it will take to get [Mitchell]."

How their relationship soured, Mitchell may not be devastated to see Gobert go

The return for the star place may not leave him feeling energized.

He was at that point "shocked and frustrated" with the flight of lead trainer Quin Snyder, as indicated by Wojnarowski.
