Donovan Mitchell continues to make the pre-draft rounds with a Monday workout for the Mavs and a Tuesday meeting with the Knicks on tap, per Ian Begley of ESPN.
Mitchell was originally reported to be meeting with Phil Jackson and company today but that’s no longer the case. He’s been projected around the top-10, and with the Knicks and Mavs picking eighth and ninth he might slip in there. Both teams are said to be big fans of French guard Frank Ntilikina with some reports having the Knicks guaranteed to take him so long as he’s available when they pick, but there should be plenty of good players on the board at that point. Even if both of these teams pass on Mitchell, don’t expect him to sit around much beyond that.
