JJ Redick wants Sixers to move Ben Simmons, not waste Joel Embiid’s prime

USA Today


Article Summary:

The Sixers have maintained that they will move him only for a top 25 player in order to acquire a difference-maker to put next to Embiid, but with the way Embiid is playing, then maybe the Sixers will settle a bit for a bunch of good players that fit next to Embiid more than going after a big star like that.

Former Sixers guard JJ Redick suggests the team trades Simmons soon in order to not waste this terrific season Embiid is having on his podcast “The Old Man and the Three”:

Daryl Morey is now saying with the way Joel is playing has elevated us to basically contender status. There’s, I think, more willingness now to trade him for a non top 25 non top 30 player and get a couple good players back and some picks.

President Daryl Morey has acknowledged that Embiid’s recent elite level of play has changed Philadelphia’s deadline plans a bit, but he also maintained that the team wants a win-win deal for the team and Simmons as well.
