    My pal Brian Windhorst became the darling of NBA Twitter on Friday for his dramatic burst of morning prognostication mere hours before Utah traded Rudy Gobert to Minnesota. Yet I suspect that Windy, when he was musing so irresistibly about the intrigue building in Salt Lake City, was thinking as much about the prospect of Donovan Mitchell landing in Brooklyn as part of a three-way deal sending Durant to the Suns as he was about what might happen with Gobert.

    That’s because, on the surface, Mitchell appears to be precisely the sort of star that would appeal to the Nets as their part of their Durant surrender. Mitchell is a face of the franchise-level player with ties to New York. The Nets just acquired Royce O’Neale, his favorite teammate in Utah not named Eric Paschall. Launching a retooling around Mitchell, who has been coveted by the crosstown Knicks for years, makes so much sense for Brooklyn.

    The problem is that Mitchell is unavailable to the Nets for the same primary reason as many top young stars: Brooklyn is ineligible to trade for Mitchell as long as Ben Simmons is on the roster. League rules preclude one team from employing two players on “designated rookie” contracts acquired via trade. Another considerable obstacle: Utah, for now, has been adamant that it won’t trade Mitchell. One nonetheless suspects that the Jazz, for all their messaging about wanting to reload around Mitchell, would eventually be willing to trade Mitchell in the proverbial “right” deal if the Nets suddenly no longer had Simmons (or were shipping him out in the same trade). Something to file away if a multi-team Durant deal doesn’t materialize immediately.

    interesting. My first thought was Mitchell might be a guy the Nets might want. Didin't know that about two rookie extensions though!

    looks like Rudy actually earned that contract. Imagine that. Where's Mitchell on the list?

    Walker Kessler did not make the Summer League roster, but I am also very high on him. Without him competing with Cockburn and Fall, it would be hard to say who of the three has the biggest chance to make the real roster.
    just a guess but I'll go with the guy with two guaranteed years on his contract

    Juzang, Fall, and Cockburn are all household names. They either made a name for themselves in college or as fan favorites. The rest of the roster might not be familiar to casual fans. In my humble opinion, Xavier Sneed and Jared Butler are the most likely to break out this summer, and a strong showing against the Thunder would be a good first step.
    Sneed didn't do much for me. Butler is a player

    Sneed averaged 15 points a game in the G-League, as well as just under three assists and six rebounds, which are all very good for his size and position. He is an adequate defender at that level, so if he steps it up in the first game there’s no reason to think he can’t fill the gap left by Royce O’Neale.
    you don't dominate the Gleague you probably aren't an NBAer

    He will certainly need to improve from beyond the arc and with his efficiency, but he has all the physical makings of an NBA player, and with a two-way contract in Utah, it may be now or never for the 24-year old to make his mark and climb his way into the NBA.
    he's a free agent right now right?

    Does any of this sound familiar? Cockburn may have been picked up by the one team that could give him a real chance. If Gobert is traded away this summer and Hassan Whiteside signs somewhere else, the Jazz might want a conventional center to lock down the paint. The odds of the stars falling for Kofi are fairly high, so he could get a real shot in the league as a role-playing center, which is exactly what he was projected to be.
    the odds aren't high for him!

    I like Bryant. But the Jazz would still suck. If they're after a starting center they must not think Udoka can stay healthy or see Kessler with the Stars at least to start the year

    Jazz were awful. They were all over Butler and he doesn't have much around him. Hopefully Kessler and the other guy join them in Vegas

    they talked to Hardy. Using a little of his terminology but mostly just wants them to play unselfish and compete defensively. See how that translates to Mitchell and Clarkson!

    they also said he wants to run!
