New York Knicks potential trade package for Donovan Mitchell

The New York Knicks have the assets to land Donovan Mitchell in a trade, owning all of their first-round picks and more from other teams. This allows the Knicks to amass a trade package that rivals any in the NBA.

Pincus attempts to put together a trade package, writing that a trade for Mitchell would “probably” be built around Julius Randle and others.

“The Knicks have all of their first-round picks, along with future first-rounders from the Dallas Mavericks, Detroit Pistons (heavily protected), Washington Wizards (protected) and Milwaukee Bucks (lightly protected). They could also have as many as nine second-round picks through 2031. The Stepien Rule limits the number of first-rounders they can offer, but they’re still short on draft capital.

“If the Knicks re-signed OG Anunoby and retained Jalen Brunson, a trade for Mitchell would likely be built around players like Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson, and/or Bojan Bogdanović (who only has $2 million of his $19 million salary guaranteed). May also include Josh Hart, Donte DiVincenzo, Miles McBride, Jericho Sims (minimum), Mamadi Diakite (minimum), DaQuan Jeffries (minimum, team option) for salary matching purposes”.
