Trading away Ben Simmons will bring change – some good and some bad. I do see plenty of opportunity in regards to Matisse Thybulle, who has been dominating in exhibition play for Team Australia in preparation for the Olympics.
I believe there will be a newfound role for Thybulle if the Sixers do indeed ship off Ben Simmons in a trade.
This is where keeping Thybulle becomes much more crucial if you’re dealing Ben Simmons. A traditional point guard would make Matisse Thybulle much more playable, as defenses wouldn’t be able to collapse as easily.
