The Sixers asking about Durant made Daryl Morey of Philadelphia's

executive staff seem haunted, and the thought was unsettling.

However, the silence between the Utah Jazz

and the Sixers show that Durant's position was an anomaly.

According to recent reports, the Jazz was attempting to offload 

their star player Donovan Mitchell before the start of training camp.

The New York Knicks, a Sixers rival, were thought to be the front-runner

to sign Mitchell because he was interested in and wanted Jazz assets.
