Powell for Simmons might be crazier to some than Lowry. But, what if it were Powell AND Lowry in the offseason in sign and trade?
One of my questions (again in this purely hypothetical implausible scenario) above was - is it possible to sign BOTH Lowry and Powell (assuming he opts out) and trade BOTH to Philadelphia for Ben Simmons? I think Simmons makes 33MM or something. I doubt Lowry gets another 30MM contract, but I could see Powell and Lowry making together $35mm... I'm sure if both Lowry and Powell were getting their market value in salary, its possible they would be amenable to that deal - they'd both still be on a contending team and getting their good money.
I don't want this to happen. I'd far prefer the Raptors re-sign Powell and Lowry. I'm a homer for all of our players.
But the defensive lineup with Simmons is super intriguing.
And the idea of Signing TWO guys and trading them both for one guy should also be a forum worthy discussion!!
