bill simmons is an idiot and a bias Boston fan. Anyone could be traded in a couple of years lol... That being said you dont think about trading a dude who is a 2 way player putting up 16/9/8 in his 2nd year... You give it years to see if the jump shot comes. I put a link about giannis first few years compared to Simmons in the simmons vs duncic thread with how ben has basically had a much better start to his career than giannis.

Bill Simmons said the same thing about Embiid, and at one point suggest cutting him after the good start. He had another absurd suggestion of DeRozen for Porter a few years ago. He tends to make absurd suggestions for division rivals to trade players away.

Heís also suggested Horford for AD straight up, and went told he couldnít because of the rose rule, he said it didnít matter because the Celtics didnít sign either one.

there is 1 scenario where id trade ben Simmons......

Sixers receive Holiday/Davis


Pelicans receive- Ben simmons/ This years first/heat first/zhaire and multiple 2nds.


A holiday/Davis/Embiid/Butler/Reddick line up is nasty... I am just not a fan of having that much beef inside but whatever.

Trail Blazers receive: Kawhi Leonard, Patty Mills


Spurs receive: C.J. McCollum, Noah Vonleh, Zach Collins, Jusuf Nurkic
Trail Blazers receive: Kawhi Leonard, Pau Gasol


look at those above trades and now look at his proposed celtics trade

They get smoked in the playoffs like last year they may be trading him this off season.

As good as Simmons is, Joel is A superstar, and you can't waste years away waiting for Ben to get a jumper.

In the playoffs, that lack of a jumper is a huge issue.

If you're philly, do you have a shorter window given Embiid health history? I was hoping for penny n shaq part 2 but I underrated just how skilled penny was

Lol terrible. Unless they are getting AD I doubt I would consider Ben for almost anyone else realistically being traded or rumored to be traded

lol that's kinda what I suggested in the Sixers forum. Like to give up Simmons, despite the flaws, I need a star under contract for a few years.
