The All-Star put up 24.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game during the 2019-20 regular season.

Yet, the No. 13 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft took his game to the next level in the playoffs. The guard averaged a whopping 36.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.9 assists per contest during the 2020 postseason.

Although Mitchell also signed a lucrative contraction extension with his current team, he recently sent Twitter into a frenzy by working out in Miami this offseason.

In addition, he has a special relationship with Heat legend Dwyane Wade.

As for Adebayo, he had a superb campaign last season. The All-Star collected a career-high 15.9 points, 10.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game.
