Ben Simmons trade rumors: Why 76ers might be smart to start considering prospect-centric packages

Article Summary:

After trade speculation turned into Simmons threatening not to report for training camp, the only questions are where and when Simmons will be traded, and what the Sixers will get in return. That’s a team with even more urgency than the Sixers, as its superstar is six years older than Embiid, and if the Klay Thompson return doesn’t go according to the best-case scenario, if he’s, say, particularly diminished as a defender, Simmons might start to look pretty attractive.

The Warriors don’t have a player to offer that is better than Simmons or even the type of lead playmaker the Sixers need.

Planning for an unknown like Lillard becoming available, and then the Blazers wanting whatever package the Sixers finagled out of the Simmons trade, is tricky.
