I don't think anyone is trading for him. Fox has regressed and Hield is shooter who can't guard. The Kings roster is filled with mismatched pieces that have serious flaws in their game. Certainly they have no stars that would interest the Sixers.
The Sixers may need to move Simmons but they aren't caving. Word is that they turned down an offer of Brogden and Levert. If that is true, I don't think any package from the Kings can match that offer. In fact, I am not sure what offers the sixers would entertain, outside of Jaylen Brown who is not on the move.
The Nuggets have few tradable assets (that they are willing to trade). JaMychal Green has regressed, Bol is not playing and Campazzo has not been an asset this season. If any trade is being proposed using these three as the bait, then good luck finding a trade. At the same time, I would love to see JaMychal and Campazzo moved. I just don't see it happening.
If the Kings will give up Fox all the better, but I think the 76ers are going to start getting desperate as well. Embiid is going to miss about 20 games likely this year, and even when he does play they are going to lose many of them, Morey will be burned in the streets if the 76ers miss the playoffs while he is playing games with Simmons and his agent.
If I remember the rumor, Simmons for Brogden and Levert fell apart because Morey wanted picks and I don't blame him, I cannot for the life of me figure out what everybody sees in Levert? Take a look at his shooting efficiency and look at how Morey builds his teams. He is not a Morey type of player. Brogdon is a good player, but he is not someone that Morey is going to trade Simmons for. Eventually Morey is going to have to accept he isn't getting a superstar in return, so he is going to have to look for help now and picks. I would not be surprised to see the 76ers end up a playin team, and with a relatively healthy Embiid that is not going to go over well in Philly.
