Mitchell has been terrible lol
Heâ€™s at least a positive impact defender and his AST/TO ratio is outstanding. Green has been awful at every facet of the game and most impact metrics paint him as arguably the worst player in the league this season.
no he's not, he hasn't been a good defender at all, -6 net rating, -BPM, shooting terribly, and is a 6 foot guard that's barely shooting 60% from the line...just awful.
Green's shooting better across the board, 80+% from the line, averaging more points and rebounds, and is 4 yrs younger, that matters to me when I am putting these teams together
The Kings' defense is 8.2 points per 100 possessions better with Mitchell on the floor than without. Compare that to Green's whose team is 4.1 points per 100 better on defense without him. You mention that Mitchell has a negative BPM yet his -3.6 BPM is higher than Green's -4.8 BPM. Mitchell has a 3.3 assist/turnover ratio which, again, is outstanding. Jalen Green literally turns it over more than he assists, with a putrid 0.9 assist/turnover ratio. Think about that, Green turns it over at more than 3.5 times the rate Mitchell does per assist. Mitchell''s TS% is indeed awful, but Green's shooting efficiency advantage doesn't come close to making up that ast/to gap or the defensive gap considering Green still scores at over 3% below league average efficiency. Plus, the fact he's attempting more shots than Mitchell works against Green when he's scoring at 4% lower scoring efficiency compared to the Rockets as a team. Finally, here are a comparison of various impact metrics:RAPM:Mitchell: -0.40
Green: -4.69 (dead last in the NBA)BPM:Mitchell: -3.6
Green: -4.8EPM:Mitchell: -2.0

Mitchell blows him out of the water across the board. As far as you saying Green is a lot younger, that's irrelevant to awards that are for the 2022 season. Grading guys on an age curve doesn't make sense. We don't do that for any award.
