Well, isn't Simmons' value at an all-time low as well?
All this summer, we've seen rumors of really low-ball offers being reported... like Brogdon + 1 FRP... or Wiggins + #7 + #14 in this draft... or CJ + filler. I think Porzingis + Brunson + 2 FRPs + 2 Swaps easily beats any of those out and could be too generous.
Well none of those trades went through so the value is probably set higher. And I don't think Porzingis has much value. He hasn't really settled into playing well off of Doncic and has had effort issues in the past, also quit on his team in NY when he didn't like his situation. Injuries are also a concern, you never know how long a 7'3 guy will last. The Dallas 1st round picks are likely 20th-30th. Brunson is a solid piece and could develop into a very good player I like him alot but you don't ideally plan on building around a 6 foot gaurd. Theres definitely better offers out there for Philly.
