Joe Ingles and Donovan Mitchell were two of the Utah Jazz’s key players for a long time. The Jazz finally traded Mitchell to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves because they believed their core, which included Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, had already reached its limit.

Joe Ingles, in particular, maybe the happiest person about the Jazz’s decision to sell Donovan Mitchell. After the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the New York Knicks 111-107, Ingles joked with the media that he is relieved Spida is now a member of the Cavaliers so he won’t overtake him as the Jazz’s all-time franchise leader in made 3-pointers.

Donovan Mitchell

According to Brian Mahoney of The Associated Press, Ingles stated, “I’m sort of thrilled he got traded because he’s still second in 3-pointers made in Jazz history.”

Joe Ingles obviously benefited from the fact that Donovan Mitchell got a head start on him on the Jazz’s all-time 3-point leaderboard because the Australian sniper had played three more complete seasons for the team than he did. Ingles made 1,071 three-pointers in eight seasons with the Jazz, which is 113 more than Mitchell (958), but in 245 fewer games.

It’s sad that Ingles’ time in Utah came to an end in a way that resulted in the 35-year-old forward tearing his left ACL. The Jazz subsequently sent him in the three-team deal that sent CJ McCollum to the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Juancho Hernangomez.

Clearly, Joe Ingles and Donovan Mitchell are inseparable. Even if Spida’s time in Utah didn’t exactly end well, Ingles still believes that the Cavs star will receive a loud cheering section in Salt Lake City tomorrow night when Mitchell makes his first trip there as an opponent.

And given that Ingles is still a charming character, it won’t come as a surprise if Jazz supporters similarly treat him well when the Bucks come to town in late March.
