It would end up being Danny Green, Mike Scott, Maxey and Thybulle for Lowry and Davis

It'd be pretty funny if he gets traded for Kyrie

He is happy, Sixers basically let him do whatever he wants, ie, you don't want to shoot? no big deal, you do you primadonna. Why do I need to keep improving when I can take it easy and collect the paychecks?

Ben is young, one of the top point guards in the league and has crazy size, crazy potential still, adds elite defense, and trying to prove himself and win. He is to me near perfect to pair with KD and Harden.

Nobody is trading anything for Kyrie right now. The Nets would need to throw in extras for a team to take on his salary, and after the Harden trade they don't really have much left.

Great idea, just one problem, the Nyets just traded all 7 of the picks they'd need to add to Kyrie to get Simmons in the Harden deal. :lol:

I don’t think Dallas could put enough in a trade for Simmons.

I think Doncic and a few future first-round picks would get it done.

Is that what you want?

Serious question.


Yes. It ensures we lose more games while getting some assets back. It also works out for Kyle as he makes the Sixers significantly better and has a chance to compete (albeit with low chances following the Harden trade) for another title in his hometown.

If this comes true, he's gonna be the first player in NBA history to average negative shot attempts from three. Go, Ben!

Rockets leaking this is petty AF.. Morey was the architect of the team, a great GM, and they ran him out of town and do him like this. No wonder Harden couldn't wait to leave. No excuse for steamrolling his own teammates, but there's gotta be some fire for all this smoke

I know you’re kidding, but Dallas wouldn’t trade Doncic for anything.

you are way off base here---the leaked trade idea was pychological--to boost his ego and make him think the team thought highly of him---aint no way anybody was trading him straight up for harden lmao

I know.

Doncic right now, and most likely in the future is more valuable than Simmons. But if Simmons ever drops his ego and starts shooting with his correct hand, he will be as good on offense as Doncic, plus the best defender in the league. Perennial MVP, top 20 all time. Unfortunately it doesn't look like he wants it, and the coaching staff don't have the guts to enforce it.
