Utah Jazz keeper Donovan Mitchell addresses ‘fake news’ in viral Twitter thread

The Donovan Mitchell saga came to a head this week when it came to the uniform the All-Star shooting guard will wear as the New Year approaches. Rumors spread like wildfire, but when the rubber met the road, there was nothing left to do.

Mitchell seemed to be having fun with the uncertainty with ex-teammate Eric Paschall and current Jazzman Jordan Clarkson with this exchange on Twitter.
