Knicks target Donovan Mitchell makes appearance at Rucker Park

Today the street-ball mecca. Tomorrow the basketball mecca?

Donovan Mitchell made an appearance at Rucker Park on Thursday night, his latest stop in what has been an offseason tour around the country and especially around New York City for the Jazz star, who is likely on the trading block.

Fans at the street basketball championship in Harlem crowded Mitchell as soon as he arrived. The Elmsford native posed for pictures, signed some autographs and took a seat next to rapper Fat Joe in a gated-off section behind a baseline.

Mitchell, who gave away a pair of his sneakers to a young fan at halftime, was not wearing any Jazz gear and appeared to only be representing himself, with a hat bearing his “Spida” logo.
