In a new trade suggestion from Bleacher Report, the website has the Sixers moving Simmons to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a three-team deal that includes the Boston Celtics.
The deal is:
- Sixers receive: Jaylen Brown and Patrick Beverley
- Celtics receive: Karl-Anthony Towns
- Timberwolves receive: Ben Simmons, Robert Williams III, Matisse Thybulle, Jaden Springer, and 2022 first-round pick
B/R on why the Sixers do this deal:
Philadelphia would follow a similar path by improving the fit of Joel Embiid’s co-star. Brown, whose name has surfaced in the Simmons trade chatter, can do a little of everything, which would make it easy to coexist with the Sixers’ star center.
A good point on adding Brown in this deal, but there does not appear to be any traction between the Sixers and the Celtics on any deal involving Brown.
