No, a Ben Simmons/Kyrie Irving trade is not realistic

Article Summary:

It’s fast become NBA Twitter’s favorite Ben Simmons trade idea, and it even has some media members speculating about it:

Ben Simmons for Kyrie Irving.

There is no indication – yet – that the 76ers have an interest in exploring the Simmons-for-Kyrie Irving trade being thrown around as the natural “Solution” for two Atlantic Division teams facing major headaches to start the season. There is a belief in some corners of the league that Irving would retire, or at least deeply ponder it, if Brooklyn suddenly traded him. Do the bend-over-backward-for-players Nets suddenly want to risk pissing off their best player?

The reality is the closest the 76ers are to a trade is with Minnesota in a D’Angelo Russell-based deal or a trade with the Pacers based around Malcolm Brogdon and/or Caris LeVert and other players.
