It’s been a busy week for Donovan Mitchell. This time, he stopped by USA Today to do a segment with their video department predicting where some of the top NBA free agents will land when the signing period begins.
The two things I found most interesting here were that Mitchell, like the rest of the basketball world, seems genuinely clueless as to where Al Horford is heading. He also seems pretty confident that Kyrie Irving is landing in Brooklyn.
You can check out the whole video here:

Here’s where Donovan predicted the top free agents land:
Kevin Durant - New York Knicks or Brooklyn Nets
Klay Thompson - Golden State Warriors
Jimmy Butler - NOT Philadelphia 76ers
Tobias Harris - Philadelphia 76ers
Al Horford - ???
Kawhi Leonard - Toronto Raptors
Kemba Walker - New York Knicks
Khris Middleton - Milwaukee Bucks
D’Angelo Russell - ???
Kyrie Irving - Brooklyn Nets
DeMarcus Cousins - Golden State Warriors
Malcolm Brogdon - Milwaukee Bucks
Personally, I think Donovan is a little more connected than he let on in that segment, but we’ll have to wait and see how his predictions stack up when free agency begins Sunday.
