The Miami Heat are coming off a good win against the Utah Jazz on Monday night. A high-scoring affair, it would come down to the very end, as both teams made the plays that needed to be made to win the game.

However, the Miami Heat came out victorious and on the back of a team effort, with a few of their key guys making big plays such as, of course, Jimmy Butler, all the way to the returning Kyle Lowry, who is now playing off the bench.

But in playing the Utah Jazz, the former team of one particular former Miami Heat target this past summer, there are new details surrounding that whole situation that just hit the wire. According to Ethan Skolnick of 5 Reasons Sports but per the Miami Heat Beat— here are those new details.

And here’s the thing, as the immediate thought goes to ‘rock reign’. A concept coined here, ‘rock reign’ simply means the ability to be on or dominate the ball.

Though there are stars in the NBA, such as Klay Thompson, Steph Curry, and even Devin Booker, at times, that have the ability to be dominant off of the ball as cutters, screeners, and movers before getting the ball and finishing the play, there are those guys that absolutely need the rock to be there best selves.

The Miami Heat reports have been mysteriously intriguing when it comes to their pursuit of Donovan Mitchell. Here is one that is pretty straightforward though.

That includes guys like LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jimmy Butler, and yes, Donovan Mitchell. Well, that brings you to another very interesting question.

Could you even possibly fully maximize Donovan Mitchell, especially in light of all you had to give up to acquire him, while also not being able to promise that he will have full-time and complete reign over the rock?

That’s the question that you have to ask yourself and the question that surrounds other guys that are currently on the Miami Heat’s roster even. Take a look at a guy like Tyler Herro, though you have more faith that he can work it out having been there the entire time with Jimmy Butler, and not having developed into that really ball-dominant scorer that Mitchell has become yet.

At the end of the day and whether this report is true or not, you take it at face value. Everybody is not built for everything or for everybody, a sentiment that certainly goes in professional sports as well.

As far as the situation goes though and if the report is true, it just seems like Mitchell understood that he would never have complete reign over the rock or take first priority over Jimmy Butler in the Miami Heat’s pecking order.
