Donovan Mitchell hasn't requested a trade from the Utah Jazz as the team itself has made the decision to put him on the block, but he has a trio of teams he would prefer to join should a deal be consummated.
Mitchell has the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat on his list. Mitchell cannot be traded to either the Nets or Heat without Ben Simmons or Bam Adebayo being sent outgoing in a deal due to the rookie max extension provision.
The Knicks are widely considered the frontrunners to trade for Mitchell, but the Jazz have been waiting for them to improve their offer.
The Jazz are seeking a collection of young players and future picks in return for Mitchell. Utah also reportedly is comfortable entering the season with Mitchell on the roster even as they have stripped down the roster around him.
