The Utah Jazz completed a blockbuster deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers to send All-Star Donovan Mitchell to Cleveland.

But there was another proposition that Jazz clearly loved.

According to Rick Butcher, jazz was so "ticked" to Mitchell's "shameless" pursuit in the New York Knicks that they were willing to make a low deal despite this.

Then he laid out the contents of his proposal.

Reportedly, the final Knicks offer included R.J. Barrett, Emmanuel Early,

Unsecured first round picks in 2024 and 2026, rights swaps in 2025 and 2027,

A 2025 first-round pick and two second-round picks from the Milwaukee Bucks.

NBA fans here weren't exactly happy with the Knicks' offer.

Many are calling out the Knicks for such an obvious lowball, while others think the Knicks may be making a dumber move ahead:

"This can literally only happen with a team worthy," wrote one user.

"I'd say he saved the Knicks from himself

But I'm afraid the Knicks are going to overpay for a friend who clearly doesn't deserve it.

*CoughDemarDerozanCough*" wrote another.

"Not missing Michelle isn't a bad thing for the Knicks.

They must have given up a lot to be seriously competitive," wrote a third user.

Some are expressing doubts that though it was a proposal.

Whatever the case, Donovan Mitchell won't be a Nike — not now, and probably not when he's still a top player.
