Do you really think that Ingram is available? They should tank this year (aka sit Zion as long as possible) and try to draft another stud. That core will have enough talent to rise to the upper echelons of the West.
A Zion and Simmons combo doesn't make any sense, so if Ingram is available a third team should be involved.
If I'm the Pels they can still draft a stud without having to sacrifice Ingram. In my opinion, Ingram is only available for Simmons plus assets (2 FRPs). If I'm the Pels I let Simmons sit out till the All-Star break to get himself together as the Rockets did with Kevin Porter Jr. when they traded for him.
I'd also let Zion sit out until he is in shape. in the off-season, I would put together a package of Simmons and the high lotto pick to a team like OKC for SGA.
With this move though how valuable for the sixers are those first round picks anyway? They SHOULD (emphasis there) be almost second round picks so we give up a few years of development d league players for a young developing small forward that could play an amazing pick and roll game with Embiid and potentially become our closer. We’re going all in for the Embiids window right so who cares about one or two late round first picks that at best become role players.
