File this in the no-brainer section: The Utah Jazz have exercised their third-year option on guard Donovan Mitchell‘s rookie contract.

The Jazz had until opening night to make a decision on the option, which had no chance of being declined. Mitchell, 22, will make $5.2 million in the 2019-20 season. The Jazz also hold a fourth-year option on his contract, as is standard with first-round picks.

Mitchell had a spectacular 2017-18 season where he became just the fourth rookie in the last decade (Joel Embiid, Blake Griffin, Tyreke Evans) to average 20 points per game as a rookie.
