Portland’s C.J. McCollum has been mentioned often as a potential Sixers target in a Simmons deal; rest assured that Morey longs for Damian Lillard if he is targeting any Trail Blazer.
Morey is not afraid to pull the trigger on any deal and it has been reported in the past that the Sixers are hoping for a chance to grab Lillard. The pick-and-roll between Lillard and Embiid would also offer more opportunities for easy points because of the different ways Lillard can score.
If Morey can pull off a deal for the Blazers star, it would put the Sixers right back at the forefront of the Eastern Conference title conversation for the 2021-22 season.
