The Utah Jazz have launched what is either going to be a retool of their roster, or a full-scale rebuild. What will determine where they fall is whether or not the Jazz trade Donovan Mitchell.
As it stands now, there is an overwhelming feeling around the NBA that Mitchell will leave Utah as a free agent in the summer of 2025. He's rumored to want to play in New York, Miami or another bigger market.
With CEO Danny Ainge emphasizing flexibility with the salary cap, it's expected the Jazz will trade Mitchell before he can leave as a free agent. Utah is also stockpiling draft picks, which was a strategy Ainge used to rebuild the Boston Celtics roster on two different occasions.
