Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell (45) reacts to a call by a referee during the first half of the game against the Portland Trail Blazers at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City on Monday, Jan. 21, 2019.

As the NBA's trade deadline is now just over a day away, one member of the Utah Jazz whose name hasn't been mentioned much (if at all) as being available given his rising stardom is Donovan Mitchell.

But at least one team has reportedly inquired about him.

On Tuesday, New York Times reporter Marc Stein wrote a story about how the New York Knicks' trade of Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks came together last week. In it, Stein mentioned that in seeking a deal for Porzingis, the Knicks asked the Jazz if they were interested in trading for the 7-foot-3 Latvian.

"They tried for untouchables such as Utah’s Donovan Mitchell and Sacramento’s De’Aaron Fox and, predictably, were rebuffed," Stein wrote.

Kyle Van Noy is New England Patriots' 'biggest steal'

Former BYU linebacker Kyle Van Noy won his second Super Bowl on Sunday as a member of the New England Patriots, and on Tuesday, Doug Kyed of NESN in Boston wrote a column arguing that Van Noy is the Patriots' biggest steal during head coach Bill Belichick's tenure.

Kyed focused on how productive Van Noy was not only on Sunday, but how good he's been since getting traded to the Patriots by the Detroit Lions in 2016.

"If it’s not the best trade, it was certainly the biggest steal," Kyed wrote.
