With this trade, the Sixers are $632K under the tax, FWIW per fanspo
Minnesota trades D’Angelo Russell (30/2) plus an undetermined amount of picks and swaps for Ben Simmons.
Charlotte trades Gordon Hayward (30/3) and Ish Smith for Tobias Harris (36/3) and... Andre Drummond (giving them the center they need and creating a huge hole for us).
Philly trades Simmons, Tobias, and Drummond for Russell, Hayward, Ish, and a number of picks and swaps depending on any balancing needed.
Philly rolls out:
I welcome the critique! I think this would make Thybulle expendable and that we would need a reliable backup center for Embiid. I’m sure we could string something up to get someone serviceable somewhere.
Simmons is better then Russell.
Tobias is better then Hayward.
And you basically have Bassey when Embiid out for his usual 25-30 games a season.
And you forgot that we have Niang and Kork in your rotation.
We’ll, yeah, there has to be a lot of critique. I have this team in the play-in with Sixers winning 1-2 games in the first round.
