SALT LAKE CITY – Basketball fans and NBA players posted on social media with their reactions after the Utah Jazz sent three-time All-Star Donovan Mitchell to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The blockbuster Mitchell trade was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and took place on Thursday, September 1, less than a month before the start of training camp and a couple of days after the New York Knicks, a previously expected landing spot for the former Jazzman, signed forward RJ Barrett to an extension worth more than $100 million.

Mitchell became the second All-Star traded by the Jazz this season. In early July, Utah sent Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for a massive haul of picks and players.

Following the Mitchell trade, basketball fans and players went to social media to share their reactions.
