Winfield wrote: “The Heat is a more likely landing spot for Donovan Mitchell and has made a commercial offer to the Utah Jazz. “In an April 2022 episode of Certified group podcast, New York City hip-hop legend Fat Joe told me he’s close to Mitchell and that Mitchell’s dream is to play for Miami, not his hometown Knicks.”

Fan heaters tweeted, “Help is underway,” while a worried Celtics fan wrote, “It’s not okay. Dammit. The East will be theirs. Preferably Boston won this year. They will never get another chance.”

If things don’t go well for Durant, perhaps the Heat can still pull the plug on the deal to bring Mitchell, who averaged 25.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game last season, to come. Miami.
