Why Dejounte Murray would plug the Sixers’ Ben Simmons-shaped hole
The two biggest knocks on a Murray trade are his relatively low 3-point percentage at 33 percent, and fit with current point guard Tyrese Maxey. Third, Murray is at least a willing 3-point shooter, averaging over four a game, which is more than can be said about Ben Simmons. Letting Murray take over the starting PG role will take some pressure off Maxey and let him thrive as a microwave scorer in the second unit.
The Sixers could also stagger the point guard and shooting guard minutes between Maxey, Seth Curry, and Murray to make sure Maxey still gets at least 24 minutes a game.
