This latest trade suggestions, coming from good ole Bleacher Report, has the Sixers moving Embiid to the New Orleans Pelicans for newly named All-Star Brandon Ingram in a sign-and-trade deal.
B/R on the Sixers side of things:
New Orleans and Philly could agree to max Ingram out on a five-year deal worth around $170 million, flipping him straight up for Embiid.
Ingram is a fine player and he was having a terrific season in New Orleans before the league suspension, but again, it’s hard to really agree to any trade involving Embiid.
