Next Team Odds for Donovan Mitchell & Rudy Gobert: Which One Leaves Utah?

Next Team Odds for Donovan Mitchell & Rudy Gobert: Which One Leaves Utah?

The Utah Jazz have advanced to the playoffs six straight seasons. Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert have been the heart of each of those five seasons, the last two as division champions. 

The postseason has been a different story. The Jazz haven’t gotten out of the second round of the Western Conference Playoffs. The last two years, they’ve been upset as a higher seed, including when they were the No. 1 seed in 2020. 

The stagnant quest for an NBA title has reportedly been too much for Gobert. Rumors have circulated that the 7-foot-1 center, NBA rebounding leader and three-time All-Star will give the Jazz a “him-or-me” ultimatum this summer. 

Both Gobert and Mitchell, the 6-1 guard and himself a three-time All-Star, have expressed a desire to remain in Utah and finish the job. But will they do it together? If one of them goes, which one, and to where? 

Bookies.com oddsmaker Adam Thompson has revealed NBA odds on where each All Star will play during the 2022-23 season.

Mitchell has averaged 25.9 ppg, 4.2 rpg and 4.5 apg, plus 1.5 steals as a complete all-around guard. Last year his numbers were nearly identical as the go-to star of the Jazz. 

Gobert has been one of the more-dominant centers in the NBA. He’s averaged at least 13.5 rpg the last three seasons, including a league-best 14.7 this year. He’s also been between 14.3 and 15.9 ppg the last four campaigns. 

Each player would be a great addition to a team looking to make a title push. There’s been no indication as to which is more likely to be shown the door – if either. 

Each would have to be traded, and to a team that can take on the cap hit. Each player has three more seasons and then a player option. Gobert’s cap hit for 2022-23 is over $38 million and it rises each season thereafter. Mitchell’s is just over $30M and rises. 

Reports have surfaced that Utah prefer keeping Mitchell over Gobert, plus the center has attracted more interest on the market anyway. 

The resignation of longtime Jazz coach Quin Snyder, however, added a new wrinkle into the fold in early June. Mitchell noted he felt "unnerved" by the situation, considering much of the reason he signed an extension in 2020 was to continue working with Snyder.

The Knicks have been widely reported to be interested in Mitchell, a New York native and noted Mets fan, if he’s on the market. Mitchell has also been connected to the Heat (former long-time Heat star Dwyane Wade is a minority owner of the Jazz), and rumors of a deal involving Victor Oladipo to Utah are being floated. Such a move would lessen the blow of losing Mitchell. 

Gobert is a defensive menace who doesn’t need the ball to make a difference – a perfect type of player for a team like the Warriors or Nets

That also works for the likes of the Celtics and Mavericks, who could be one defensive low-post powerhouse from jumping into annual NBA betting favorite status. It would be unlikely, however, for the Jazz to trade Gobert to another Western Conference contender unless the haul was significant.
