But the bigger mistake he’s making is still having Tobias on this team. He paid to move Horford, if you have to do the same with Tobias you do it. Cannot harp on the addition by subtraction theme enough with Tobias.


There are several misconceptions here, for starters Horford contract is around 27 millions this year and of those 20 are guarantee, Harris is 35 millions this year and his contract has one more year than Horford.

Thinking that because you were able to move one it would be easy to move the other is just not real.

To Cleveland: Shake, Jaden McDaniels
To Minny: Ben
To Sac: Beasley, Prince
To Philly: Hield, Sexton, picks

Embiid/Drummond/Bassey
Harris/Niang/Reed
Green/Thybulle/Korkmaz
Hield/Curry/Joe
Sexton/Maxey/Springer

That 2nd unit is legit.

Who is this Jaden McDaniels that Cavs would be willing to downgrade Sexton with Milton with?

Seems like Cleveland doesn't want to pay him a max deal. If that's true, it could make sense for them.

Shake and McDaniels for Sexton? They can probably get better offers for that. They can call Pels for a better package

Simmons, Harris, and Milton to HOU for Wall, Wood, Gordon, 2023 HOU 1st, and 2024 BKN 1st
It is highly unlikely that the Sixers will agree with your Ben Simmons evaluation for the purposes of a trade.

The Pelicans have Lewis and Alexander-Walker. Why do they want Sexton?

It would be absurd to throw in Maxey in a deal for Sexton.

Keeping Maxey (along w/Sexton) gives us TWO chances instead of just one to get the PPP we need.

Looking at the odds from the betters, those three and a couple fo firsts for Ben would be a great trade ... :-D

Probably his fit with Embiid.

Upgrades and you can’t have too many scorers

I like it, you dont sell a stock when its value already crashed, we gotta wait now. 4 years is a long time, it´s diferent from the Harden situation(the contract is way longer). The sixers don´t own Bum Simmons any favors. Let´s see if he will really sit, call his bluff.

I really hope Ben shoots 6 threes a game to "prove a point" and it, ironically, opens up our offense immensely.

Ben should post of him missing shots and having yips on his shots, so Morey will be forced to trade him
