Posted this in the other trade thread but this fits here too...
Interesting...on The Jump today...Uncle Perk said something about there being rumors of Kyle Lowry getting to go to Philly...
Perk also mentioned NY in the same breath. Perk obviously isn't looking at the draft order...but he mentioned the possibility of Toronto landing Lamelo Ball. Ball isn't falling to NY's pick but it would imply that perhaps NY's #8 pick could be involved.
Could it be something like Ben Simmons to NY, #8 and other stuff to Toronto and Kyle and stuff to Philly?
This makes the most sense IMO. Simmons and Embiid need to be split, Kyle would be the perfect fit for them to make a run next year and + he is friends with all of those guys (harris, kyle oquinn) Simmons to NYK where he would be on broadway and in the spotlight with a young team like RJ and Mitch Rob, they are just a vet away from squeaking into the playoffs.
If I am the raps I want Elfrid Payton and their #8 pick. Payton is an expiring 8mil contract and is a solid defender at the Guard position which Nurse will appreciate. I trust Masai to draft well at #8 and we can re-sign fred for his market value of $22mil
But this obviously depends on what Kyle wants to do. Does he want to retire in Toronto or Philly. Will he do a 1+1 to end his career?
