Ben Simmons and Paul Reed would be monstrous on defense.


Agreed, and still horrendous on offense since they occupy the same space.

Paul Reed makes me smile so hard whenever he gives interviews. Him and Maxey are gems.

JK, Ben is our C and Joel is forced to be PF.


I think Doc Rivers is about like Scott Brooks as a coach. Reed should have played more. He is flat better than most starting PFs.
After the Wizards GM really went and did it by having an imaginative, strong, draft day. I totally feel this as well;

Agreed, but we sunk two separate $30m+ contracts into 6'9"+ 230+ pound players. No chance Reed gets on the court until one of them is moved for a PG/SG/SF.

Depends.

Play them together when Joel sits. Simmons should play the bulk of his minutes as back up C.

You are right in that is what sucks about the N B A. They play the contracts and not the talent. Atlanta and Phoenix went all the way to the Conference Finals and Finals because they did not have bloated contracts. They just had guys who are hustling.

Washington was stuck watching Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook shoot a bunch of shots and making a gazillion dollars combined.

Ben doesn't want to play center. I don't think he can hang with them either

Nix is what I view as an intriguing project to take a flyer on. Weird body, weird athleticism levels, evident basketball ability and semblance of elite decision making. Keep this guy in the organization. Henry too.
