NBA Trade Grades: The James Harden-Ben Simmons deal
The Brooklyn Nets traded James Harden and Paul Millsap to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, their 2022 first-round pick, and a top-eight protected 2027 first-round pick.
According to reports, Simmons has already gotten into contact with Kevin Durant.
This is by far one of the wildest trade-deadline deals in recent memory, and in the spirit of NBA trade grades, let’s see how it worked out for both sides.
