On October 7th, Kenneth Teape made minor waves over at the NBA Analysis Network by suggesting a trade between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Houston Rockets centered around Ben Simmons and Kevin Porter Jr.
Now, right from the jump, this trade is never going to happen.
This time last year, the idea of trading Ben Simmons for Kevin Porter Jr. would have been unimaginable.
Heck, from a physical standpoint, Simmons might be the most impressive player in the entire NBA, as you don’t often find players that big who are that fast with that good of a handle.
With all of that in mind, would a hypothetical trade of Simmons for KPJ make sense? Sure.
