Really Excited to Play w/ Mike Conley
… He’s a ‘Big Piece!!’

Spida was out at the Adidas store in NYC just hours after the trade went down on Wednesday … so we had to ask what he thought of the move.
“Really excited,” Mitchell says. “Having Mike is a great piece and i’m excited to play with him.”
FYI — the Jazz sent Kyle Korver, Jae Crowder, Grayson Allen and their 2019 draft pick to land the 12-year vet … but Mitchell is confident giving up those role players for a “big piece” like Conley will benefit the team.
Spida SHOULD be excited … a lot of people are saying the move makes the Jazz legit contenders to make the NBA Finals next season … and they haven’t been there since 1998 (shoutout Stockton and Malone).
BONUS — we also asked Mitchell — the 2018 Slam Dunk contest winner — who would win in a dunk contest between him and Zion Williamson … and his answer will surprise you!!!
