Kendrick Perkins compared Donovan Mitchell to NBA and Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade.

According to Perkins, Mitchell is the ‘modern day Dwyane Wade’.

“The way he moves through the lane, how crafty he is even with the walk with the shoulders & all. It’s something about his whole swag it’s D-Wade-ish.

When you look at D-Wade when he first came in, he was dunking everything, he was super athletic. That’s who Donovan Mitchell is. Chase down blocks & all that? Yeah. He IS the modern day D-Wade,” Perkins told Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson of Heavy.com.

Mitchell recently agreed to a five-year, max contract extension with the Utah Jazz, worth $163M.
