Most of the players the Sixers have been linked to aren’t available yet so I think more signs point to the slog marching on than resolving quickly. The teams we think may ultimately land Simmons only have a couple of the Sixers’ desired targets between them.
DE: Kyrie Irving could get traded, get vaccinated, or find some plant-based compromise and any of those scenarios would dramatically alter the current landscape of the NBA. The Sixers could land Jaylen Brown for Simmons tomorrow, while keeping Tyrese Maxey and Matisse Thybulle but if Irving was suddenly in the lineup for Brooklyn it would be tough sledding.
3) How outrageous is the idea of the Thunder being the third team with the Sixers getting SGA ? Presti said he’s gettable a while ago and Doc is his old coach.
