If he becomes available in the trade market this offseason, Donovan Mitchell might find himself taking his own talents to South Beach.

Per Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Miami Heat has been frequently mentioned as a potential landing spot for the Utah Jazz star once traded.

And the factor for the Heat to snatch the All-star guard is Dwyane Wade, their greatest player in franchise history who is now the Jazz’ minority owner.

“Miami has been mentioned by league sources as a smart landing spot for Mitchell with [Dwyane] Wade’s strong connections to his beloved heat.

With that, the Heat looks poised to join the New York Knicks who are initially in the hunt to claim Mitchell. Some key officials of the Knicks like William Wesley and Allan Houston were seen spectating in some of Utah’s first-round games against the Dallas Mavericks, sparking murmurs with regards to their given intention.

Once Miami catches Mitchell, their core and chances to claim the championship will undeniably get stronger. The ball club remains as one of the East’ title heavyweights which features a gritty culture and immense firepower.

With the Jazz now gone in the playoffs, Mitchell’s future in Salt Lake City continues to be a talk in the association. As such, both him and the franchise are projected to face a bold offseason.
