Ben Simmons

At this point, it is a matter of when, not if, Ben Simmons is traded away by the Philadelphia 76ers. It is the biggest domino left to fall as we head toward the 2021-22 regular season. This is a deal that would change the landscape of the NBA no matter where he landed.

Being 25-years old, Simmons will help a team in the present and future. His long-term outlook is even better if he can get his confidence back offensively and improve his free throw shooting.

Teams such as the Minnesota Timberwolves, Charlotte Hornets, and Sacramento Kings could look at Simmons as their franchise savior to help push them over the hump to playoff contenders.

Teams that are already entrenched as playoff contenders, such as the Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors, could see Simmons as the last piece to open up a championship window or push them to that next level of contention.
