Ben Simmons trade rumors: Warriors reluctant to deal for Simmons with Draymond Green on roster, per report

Article Summary:

Ben Simmons’ name has been in trade rumors for what seems like the entirety of his four-year, highly decorated NBA career, and for the majority of that time, the Golden State Warriors have been a rumored destination. While Simmons would slot alongside Curry and Thompson seamlessly, the fit with Draymond Green – another non-shooting, playmaking guard in a forward’s body – could prove problematic. The potential redundancy between Simmons and Green has the Warriors divided, according to Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area.

“According to league sources, any interest the Warriors might have in Simmons is conditional,” Poole wrote.

The idea of Simmons playing center in the newest incarnation of the vaunted Death Lineup next to Curry, Thompson, Wiggins and Green, is tantalizing.
