That's an interesting idea! A 3-way where Beal goes to Philly for Simmons, Maxey and picks, Simmons goes somewhere else for picks, and we just get picks. What about OKC? How many of their future picks would they give up for Simmons? Would they give up their own 2021 1st plus the Houston 2021 1st?
So it would be:
Washington trades: Beal
Washington receives: PHI 2021 1st, OKC 2021 1st, HOU 2021 1st, Tyrese Maxey, Al Horford
Philly trades: Simmons, Maxey, 2021 1st,
Philly receives: Beal
OKC trades: Horford, 2021 OKC 1st, 2021 HOU 1st
OKC receives: Simmons
The Wizards could end up with 3 lotto picks and a late 1st in the upcoming draft. OKC might even throw more into the mix. They have so many future picks.
Notably, this deal also works this summer as none of the pieces being moved are expiring contracts. We could wait and see what those picks are after the lottery drawing.
