Simmons to DC as discussed a bunch of times, is a weird fit. Simmons and Westbrook for 3 years paired together. Wizards last two draft high picks have been forwards — Simmons ideal position. Outside of Bertans do they surround him with shooting?
The trade I have seen a bunch of times still works (maybe better) even after the draft.
Wizards: Beal + Fillers
Edwards + Culver + Green + Draft Picks
Wolves: Edwards + Rubio + Culver + Draft Capital
Simmons + Filler
76ers: Simmons + Green
Beal + Rubio
76ers get more shooting and a pass first PG.
Curry as 6th man and 4th quarter shooter.
76ers give this lineup a try. Next season they would have Rubio expiring salary, Curry, youth and own picks to upgrade if needed.
That better be a lot of "Draft Capital" for the Wizards to consider it. Beal is currently averaging 35/5/5 on above - .600 TS% by the way.
Harden is a better scorer and can run the offense. I also dont like that Beal's scoring doesnt appear to help the Wizards to even get to the playoffs in a conference where teams like Orlando are playoff teams. There is always going to be a guy scoring a lot of points on a team, even bad teams, and i am not sure how his scoring, his main asset, would translate on good teams. Lavine or Russell are some other players with similar concerns although in their cases most people would share my concerns i think, while with Beal i am probably in the minority.
