Report: Donovan Mitchell agrees to max extension with Utah Jazz

Donovan Mitchell has reportedly agreed to a max extension with the Utah Jazz.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Mitchell's deal will guarantee him $163 million over five years. It could increase up to $195 million if he meets All-NBA criteria this upcoming season, Wojnarowski adds.

The No. 13 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, Mitchell is coming off of a season in which he averaged a career-best 24.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game while shooting 44.9 percent from the field and 36.6 percent from 3-point range. Those numbers helped Mitchell earn the first All-Star selection of his career.

Mitchell led the Jazz to the sixth seed in the Western Conference with a 44-28 record. They lost in seven games in the first round to the Denver Nuggets, but Mitchell dominated with an average of 36.3 points per game.

Mitchell had two 50-point games in the series, making him only the fourth player in NBA history to have multiple 50-point games in a playoff series.

Having only recently turned 24, Mitchell is widely considered to be one of the best young prospects in the NBA.
