We have entered the dog days of the NBA offseason. With August winding down, the focus is being turned to the 2021-22 season as training camps are right around the corner. That means teams are working feverishly to fill out rosters for training camp, where they can have up to 20 players attending.

Teams will have to cut down to 15 for the regular season but are likely to hold onto extra bodies throughout camp to avoid overuse and injuries in the early going. While most of the roster shuffling is complete, there are still some players that could be on the move between now and training camp.

The Ben Simmons saga continues to drag on, as he remains a member of the Philadelphia 76ers. Will that stay the same into the regular season? Or will they find a trade partner for him that appeases what they are looking for?

Another player that could be on the move is Thaddeus Young. Young is currently a member of the San Antonio Spurs but could be moved again for more assets.

Some veterans could have new homes in the coming weeks. Paul Millsap is one of the better free agents remaining on the market. Will he be scooped up before training camp, or take the same approach that J.J. Redick is, and sit out camp, joining a team later in the season.

He could be joined by another veteran on the free-agent market soon, as DeAndre Jordan’s future with the Brooklyn Nets looks bleak.

Which cities may these players be calling home for the 2021-22 season? Let’s try our hand at some predictions for where Ben Simmons, Thaddeus Young, Paul Millsap and DeAndre Jordan will end up.

Ben Simmons

Things seemed to be quieting on the Ben Simmons trade front recently. The Philadelphia 76ers reportedly told teams that they are comfortable bringing him back for the 2021-22 season, but rival executives aren’t buying it.

According to Shams Charnia, those rival executives believe it is a matter of when, not if, Simmons is traded. All signs point to his career in Philadelphia coming to an end.

If that is the case, where may Simmons end up? There are plenty of teams that would love to have him on the roster. Despite his shortcomings offensively, he is a 25-year old who is an All-Defensive team, elite rebounder and playmaker. He does things other players in the league can only dream of.

The Sacramento Kings, Minnesota Timberwolves, Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors have all been linked to him. Philadelphia sent trade offers to the Warriors, San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors. The Indiana Pacers were the first team reported to have offered a trade for him.

Ultimately, it will be the San Antonio Spurs that land him in a trade. Simmons will become the new face of their franchise and if Gregg Popovich and his staff cannot further develop him, there likely isn’t a team in the NBA that can.
