The value could increase to $195 million by meeting certain incentives, the player’s agents told the network.

Mitchell, 24, made his first All-Star team and averaged career highs with 24.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists in 69 starts in 2019-20. He made 173 3-pointers at a career-best 36.6 percent clip and shot 86.3 percent from the free-throw line, also a personal best.

He went to another level during Utah’s seven-game loss to the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs, averaging 36.3 points per game with two 50-point contests.
