I think the Philly fans, media and maybe even coaches got down on Ben last season. Is Morey high on Ben? Some says Ben can't play with Joel. I think people are overreacting to a disappointing season.
I think Morey probably has an accurate opinion on Ben which is why he wouldn't trade him to OKC. Morey wants to win now and Ben's value is closer to Harden than CP3.
I think Harden has a lot more value than Ben (at this point in time), while I agree Ben has a lot more value than CP3.
I think Houston is very much wanting to keep Harden. I think Philly would consider moving Ben. I think OKC wants to move CP3.
So the question is what can OKC do to close that gap both in terms of value and salary.
If I'm Philly I'm looking to get CP3, first round draft picks and move salary.
If I'm OKC I'm looking to pair Ben with SGA and Balsey. Everything else would be negotiable.
