Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell joins Mets for batting practice

Someone reminded the Knicks: Spiders were found in New York.

Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell, who has been the subject of much of the Knicks rumors in recent months, joined the Mets at Citi Field Thursday for batting practice.

The 25-year-old Elmsford native made some solid contact with a bat and a pair of batting gloves from Francisco Lindor.

He also chatted with fellow All-Stars Taijuan Walker and Pete Alonso.

Mitchell’s father, Donovan Sr., who works for the Mets, is reportedly unhappy with the Jazz’s situation, and the Knicks would be interested in him if he plans to leave Utah.

Having a few extra friends nearby — like some All-Stars in Queens — isn’t a bad thing.

Quin Snyder recently resigned as Jazz coach. Mitchell tweeted that people were “blatantly lying about my name” after a radio report said he would not answer Snyder’s calls.
