Guessing which players are on Sixers’ 30-player list of Ben Simmons trade-targets

Article Summary:

To get there I had to establish a tier of players the Sixers have zero chance of getting, but that they’d of course love to trade Simmons for.

  • Jaylen Brown
  • Donovan Mitchell
  • Jamal Murray
  • Zion Williamson
  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

PH: The Celtics were quick to shoot down any possibility of Brown being traded, but things change.

  • Damian Lillard
  • Bradley Beal
  • Zach LaVine
  • OG Anunoby
  • James Harden
  • De’Aaron Fox
  • Brandon Ingram
  • Darius Garland

PH: Beal, LaVine and Anunoby are mentioned because they’ve been linked to the Sixers in the past, but their teams would likely have to suffer a cataclysmic collapse to grease the wheels on a trade.

I can imagine a world where the Sixers would give a very quick “Yes” to Anthony Edwards, whereas I think the Warriors offering Draymond Green would get a “Listen, I gotta run, I’m gonna give you over to Ned Cohen, but let’s keep in touch.”

Here’s my list, asterisks indicate more synergies.
