This season is likely to be shutdown at some point anyways. Keep Simmons.

Mavs Trade: Brunson, Bullock, Powell, Kleber, 2022 1st (top 8 protected), and 2024 1st (top 5 protected)
Mavs Receive: Ben and Trey Lyles

Pistons trade: Jerami Grant and Lyles
Pistons Receive: Thybulle, Kleber, Powell, Mavs 2024 1st (top 5 protected), Sixers 2nd round pick

Brunson
Curry
Grant
Tobi
Jo

Maxey
Green
Bullock
Niang
Drummond
Shake and Korkmaz suddenly very expendable at the end of the bench…all though depth is obviously a premium right now.

I’m starting to think the only way Morey is going to be able to bring another star to Philly is through a 2 part process. Everyone would wine about not getting a good enough player back in the trade above…but now think about going into the off-season with a trade package of Grant, Curry, Maxey, and 2 2022 1sts. That’s going to be MUCH more appealing to any rebuilding team than being saddled with Ben and his max contract.

For a second there I thought we had a new and improved Ben Simmons, the fever dream of off-season Ben shooting three pointers videos.

I miss The Ocho.

Nacho Libre!!
It is highly unlikely that the Sixers will agree with your Ben Simmons evaluation for the purposes of a trade.

Ben,Seth,Mattisse,Drummond to Golden State

Wiggins,Poole,Wiseman,Toscano Anderson to Philly.


Golden State puts together a championship core for the next few years.

Sixers start their rebuild. Decide what to do with Tobias,Joel in offseason.

If a team is going to rebuild (which the Sixers should not BTW) they don't do it by trading with the BEST TEAM in the league and sending them better YOUNG PLAYERS than the BEST TEAM is trading away.

Maybe there should be a poll of if he's dealt before this thread is locked at 100 pages?

I’ve predicted a while ago no trade gets done this entire season

These are the reasons
1. Tanking teams don’t want Simmons cause his “floor” means a few more wins and that could cost them dearly in the lottery
2. Competing teams don’t want to gut their roster of their core players

So sixers are stuck with Simmons

Simmons gonna to lose millions which I’m fine with also at this point. He’s gonna to break sooner than later (financially).

Morey is likely figuring how to unload Harris and Simmons in the off season to tweak sixers roster.

That’s why prediction. Yes. It’s a wasted year for embiid. But let’s try to keep him healthy and not over play him.

We are likely a 5-8 seed at this point. The east is so jam packed.
