With his father serving as a director of player relations for the New York Mets, Mitchell spent his childhood around Major League Baseball locker rooms.
At seven years old, he looked up to star pitcher of the Mets’ minor-league system Scott Kazmir and later to David Wright, who was the first poster he hung on his wall. Mitchell has one younger sister named Jordan.
He played AAU basketball for both The City and the Riverside Hawks programs out of New York City.
In 2010, Mitchell was present at the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich (Conn.) when LeBron James announced his decision to sign with the Miami Heat.
Donovan Mitchell trade news
The Utah Jazz have completed the demolition stage of their rebuild.
Two months to the day after dealing All-NBA center Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Jazz will trade All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Cleveland will send Collin Sexton, Lauri Markkanen and Ochai Agbaji to Utah in the trade, but that is hardly the haul chief Jazz executive Danny Ainge sought in exchange for Mitchell.
Ainge wanted draft picks, and he got three unprotected first-rounders and two first-round swaps in the deal, according to multiple reports.
The picks coming from the Cavaliers fall in the years 2025, 2027 and 2029, plus swaps in 2026 and 2028, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported. The Timberwolves owe the Jazz their first-round picks in 2023, 2025, 2027 and 2029, plus another 2026 swap. Only Minnesota’s 2029 first-round pick is protected (for top five).
