The free agency period of the NBA offseason is well underway and there have been plenty of notable signings take shape.
Lonzo Ball and DeMar DeRozan joined forces on the Chicago Bulls, Kyle Lowry is now a member of the Miami Heat, and Evan Fournier is headed to the New York Knicks.
With most of the noteworthy names inking deals in free agency, the attention is turning toward trade candidates like Ben Simmons, Damian Lillard, Buddy Hield, Joe Ingles, and Pascal Siakam.
Money has dried up for quite a few teams, so trades could be tougher to manufacture right now. That doesn’t mean that certain teams that are trying to capture a title next season won’t be aggressive in making a move for a marquee player.
On the other hand, there are a few players that would prefer to be playing on a new team in 2021-22.
Given the information we know and using my personal judgment, I attempt to predict whether or not Ben Simmons, Damian Lillard, Buddy Hield, Joe Ingles, and Pascal Siakam will be traded in the coming weeks.
