The Utah Jazz want to retain Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gober to the team for many years.
Therefore, the franchise already has extension offers in place for the two stars.
Mitchell is set to earn $5M in the 2020/21 season, while he has a qualifying offer, worth $7M, in 2021.
For his part, Gobert is entering the final year of his four-year deal with the Jazz and is set to earn $25.8M.
Gobert averaged 15.1 points and 13.5 rebounds last season, while Mitchell posted 24 points, 4.4 boards and 4.3 assists for Utah.
The Jazz save $5M in salary for 2020-2021. Utah is working to re-sign Jordan Clarkson and extensions are on the horizon for Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. Knicks get the two 2023 second-round picks to take on the salary. https://t.co/pZTs4OmRE0
