Buckle up, Utah Jazz fans.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania and Tony Jones reported Tuesday that the Jazz and New York Knicks have reengaged in trade talks that involve All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell.

There has been trade conversation between the two franchises within the past week, The Athletic reported, while adding, “There is no traction between the two teams on a deal, and no Mitchell trade is imminent for the Jazz, sources said.”

This comes after a report from Charania at the end of July that talks between the Jazz and Knicks had “stalled out.”

Charania and Jones also reported — as Charania did a few weeks ago — a pair of other teams have shown interest in pursuing Mitchell: the Charlotte Hornets and Washington Wizards.

Other teams that have been linked to a possible trade involving Mitchell include the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors, Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks.

The Athletic was first to report back on July 13 that the Knicks and Jazz had engaged in conversations about a trade involving the Jazz’s star player.
