Say the Sixers keep Simmons, he works on things, and we start the regular season and see repeats of why he’s been maddening. Now, if the Sixers were to trade Simmons to Oklahoma City for Walker and load manage him and Embiid to have that duo plus Tobias Harris for a full playoff run, sure.
Then there’s the other issue of wondering how the hell Simmons fits on a team that’s essentially the same as the one he’s on now. Secondly, how does trading for Simmons to the roster for literally their only shooter help the Bulls because they’re TOTALLY DEVOID of outside shooting past LaVine?
That’s another rhetorical question.
