If we can't get a star for Ben, would this be a good trade? Idk if Cavs do this, but if they do we suddenly have a lot of ball handling, and quite a bit of shooting

Spoiler:

Murray/Curry/Maxey
Sexton/ White
Green/Thybulle
Love/Niang
Embiid/Drummond

Love probably will miss a lot and there are questions about his level overall right now, so we'll play small a lot with Thybulle and even Green at 4 as we'd have a ton of guards.

Michael B on Twitter saying talks have stalled and 76ers planning to start season with Ben.

I hope they realize how ackward and ugly this is going to be

I think Ben's going to come out in All-Star game vote mode so that both parties get what they want. Ben gets a new home and Morey gets adequate return.

Virtually everything claimed about Simmons this summer has proven to be false but that hasn’t stopped hundreds of pages of posts from being written

True I guess, but if you look at the tweet he refers to it says they are prepared to bring him back, not that they're planning for it. Even though they sound similar, the meanings of the two words are nuanced. Next time include the original tweet.

I wasn’t referring to that tweet ( which actually makes sense as we’re not giving him away)

Just how everything written about Simmons generates noise whether it be true or not
