Austin Brown Rumors
Utah Jazz All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell has agreed to a five-year, $195 million designated rookie extension, his agents Ty Sullivan and Austin Brown of CAA Sports told ESPN. Mitchell, 24, rapidly developed into one of the most explosive and popular young players in the NBA, an instantaneous franchise cornerstone for the Jazz organization.
The deal includes a 30% escalator clause that would turn the guaranteed $163 million base into $195 million should Mitchell be voted onto one of the three All-NBA teams, sources said. Talks moved quickly on the maximum extension, with Sullivan and Brown finalizing terms on Sunday morning with Jazz president Dennis Lindsey and general manager Justin Zanik, sources said.
