Utah Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell has been connected in trade rumors to the brand new York Knicks for months, but he’ll be considered a Cleveland Cavalier instead following the Cavs pulled off a sensational proceed to land the three-time All-Star on Thursday.

Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn

Full trade: Utah is trading Donovan Mitchell to Cleveland for Lauri Markkanen, Ochair Agbaji, Collin Sexton, three unprotected first-round picks and two pick swaps, sources tell ESPN.

Ultimately, the Knicks and Jazz simply weren’t in a position to see eye to eye on the draft capital requests.

Word was New York’s final, best offer for Donovan Mitchell included two unprotected first-round picks. Cleveland’s ultimate package features three, plus two pick swaps which are also unprotected, sources said. Utah always managed to get clear these were trying to find future draft capital.

Some Knicks fans on Twitter were clearly upset that their team didn’t land Mitchell, who perfectly may help turn the Cleveland Cavaliers into an Eastern Conference powerhouse (Warning: strong language used):

However, others realized the massive price connected with Mitchell and provided some nuance to the discussion.

Tommy Beer @TommyBeer

Actually, almost all Knicks fans could have LOVED Mitchell arriving at MSG.

Plus some were ready to quit anything/everything via trade to create him home.

However, from what I’ve seen, nearly all Knicks fans only wished to trade for Mitchell if the purchase price was right…

IMSPLASHYYY @camsosplashyy

As a Knicks fan why the hell would u want Donovan Mitchell and Jalen Brunson to be ur backcourt there both excellent but both struggle defensively That is ideal for the Cavs who’ve good defensive pieces around DMITCH ( DG isnt a negative defense guard) IM a happy Knicks fan

Peter John @KavzTv_

God I hate being truly a Knicks fan sometimes but probably best we didnt trade for Mitchell.

Cynical Knicks Fan @cynicalknicks

Im so pleased with Leon, man. He did an excellent job. We keep all of the young guns, and also have an excellent direction continue. Quitting all that for Donovan Mitchell is a classic Knicks move that wouldnt end well. Now time and energy to move Randle.

Ultimately, the Knicks held to their picks and young players, including RJ Barrett, Obi Toppin and Immanuel Quickley.

They could not need made the Mitchell move, and making the playoffs is a fight in a hardcore, deep Eastern Conference, however the future is not mortgaged because the Knicks give themselves more options to boost in upcoming years.
