Reports that trade talks between the Jazz and Knicks centered on Donovan Mitchell have “stalled out” and the two teams haven’t had contact for about two weeks. Utah is continuing to discuss moving Mitchell, just not with New York. ESPN’s Zach Lowe wonders if the Heat ever seriously pursued Hawks big man John Collins, but wonders if they might revisit that possibility before the season starts. Fred Katz of The Athletic suggests that the return the Jazz received from the Timberwolves for Rudy Gobert may have stalled the trade market for stars like Mitchell and Kevin Durant. The Nets are seeking a bigger package for Mitchell than they received for Gobert, according to Katz, and the Nets are certainly looking for a massive haul for Durant. . . .
