Bradley Beal to the Sixers for Ben Simmons and 2 1st round picks Ben Simmons to the Raptors for Kyle Lowry and 3 1st round picks Kyle Lowry to the Knicks for Elfrid Peyton,Reggie Bullock, Frank Ntilikina and a 1st round pick Why? Wizards get 6 1sts to rebuild with and don’t have to force misfitting Russell Westbrook, and Ben Simmons to play together in a straight up Sixers-Wizards deal Sixers maximize Embiid’s prime with a lethal partner in Beal - P&R would be infinitely better than Murray/Jokic who went deep in the bubble...Can’t run P&R with Ben and Embiid Raptors stay contender for years to come with FVV-Powell-Siakam-Simmons. (And yes I’m placing Simmons after Siakam because Raptors would be able to unleash the Point-Center in Ben Simmons) Knicks would run Lowry-Quickley-RJ-Randle-Mitch and have a better team to make some noise this year. Any upgrade over Elfrid and Bullock should be welcomed. They’d have to resign Lowry. Im guessing he could do a 3yr 45/60mill deal into retirement but I think giving up a 1st is worth it. They have those extra two mavs picks and the free agency class all but dried up - except Kawhi
If im the wizards id rather have ben simmons over a bunch of low quality firsts. If theyre rebuilding anyway what does the fit with westbrook and ben matter.
True. But Ben and Rui would never work either. Siakam shot isnâ€™t as good as prior years but theyâ€™d be a better fit together
Lol you donâ€™t make plans about assets as valuable as Ben on the basis of Rui fucking Hachimura
Then trade Rui?
Ben and Rui would work great together, Ben can be the star point guard and Rui can be on another team
if the raptors wanted to give up lowry and 3 1sts for ben, harden would be on the sixers right now
Honestly I actually kinda like this, even if the fit with Ben and Pascal could be a little odd, since it means Fred can actually play the position we all know he really should be playing: shooting guard.
So we get worse due to having no point guard and have to give up 2 first round picks?
What else more do you want out of a backcourt with Beal and Seth shooting 50% from deep? Opening it up for even even more 50pt games for Embiid lol
They have no one to facilitate getting those guys the ball, neither is ball dominant
What happens to OG?
Forgot about him. Heâ€™d be nice with those 4 too. Iâ€™m essentially thinking theyâ€™d become a better defensive team and more uptempo. And Ben would unlock deeper value in FVV and Siakam
Raptors and 76ers not trading stars with each other lol
I agree. But I feel the Sixers would be confident in their ability to beat them in the playoffs with Beal-Tobi-Embiid And itâ€™s not as bad as trading with the Celtics lol
Raptors wouldnâ€™t give up that much for Simmons. Three first round picks is a lot. Who was the last person traded for that haul?
I think Jrue? Harden obviously but he was 3 FRP and then some
Jrue Holiday got traded for 4 first and hes worse than Simmons and like 6 years older.
it was 3 picks and the Bucks also sent Bledsoe who was kind of a negative asset
Exactly. Jrue went for a Haul
Sixers would laugh and hang up
Why would they laugh. They almost did Ben, Thybulle and a pick for Harden. Beal is a same caliber player. I rather keep Thybulle and give up an extra 1st - his defense is immaculate
Beal is not on hardens level. No where near the playmaker that harden is. The sixers defense becomes terrible and there isnâ€™t a single real playmaker on the teamâ€¦
This makes no sense
I donâ€™t know if Iâ€™d trade 3 FRP for Ben when we have a young frontcourt under contract
Ok, letâ€™s say 2 1sts
Knicks arent gonna give up any draft capital for Lowry. Hes not moving the needle enough for a rebuilding team to give up any assets
Knicks are a playoff team. At some point you have to put some gas into a rebuild and be serious about contending. Knicks would be so much better upgrading Elfrid and Bullock in their starting lineup
