    Lilliard is much better than Simmons, and the difference is Simmons hasn't made it clear why he wants to leave, nor any preferred teams with realistic assets available to trade for him.

    LeBron will force otherwise just as he has in the past Cleveland 2018. If Lakers need to attach assets to trade Westbrook again, they will.

    It would go down for sure if he acted just like Simmons.

    Who wants to give up (the inevitable) six 1st round draft picks and talent for a player you're uncertain won't force and pout his way out...

    No.

    Simmons has to shake that distraction label. He's nuclear waste at this point.

    Is he so bad that they couldn't try to trade him?

    He'll be paid $11.3M to rot on the bench.

    I'm half joking. I know it's impossible with the new arena, but they've been horrible for a while and got out of bed with a dog just to jump in with a pig. Randive and all the decisions they've made...

    Shots fired!

    "At this point I don't care about that man honestly," Embiid said of Simmons. "He does whatever he wants. That's not my job. ... I'm only focused on trying to make the team better, win some games,...

    At this point he's not even worth that because there's no guarantee he wants to play for Cleveland or he won't repeat this same behavior. I don't feel I'm overreacting by saying that Simmons is...

    I agree, but if Simmons miraculously comes out in the next game he plays and plays fine, how disinterested he looks in practice will be irrelevant.

    Harden did not play fine, and his team was...

    He does look disinterested, and he didn't join the final huddle and was just bouncing his ball instead. Also was the first one out of the gym.

    Still, this is non news. Nobody should expect a 100%...

    But the pay is the only real knock on him as long as you know that he's going to this take a dip in the playoffs. His age fits Embiid's timeline, he seems to be a good teammate, doesn't complain,...

    I don't disagree. Harris is a solid 3rd option. He's kind of overpaid, but a solid fit with Embiid and that's what really matters.

    Not from his perspective.

    Yes, as I stated originally, he chose Brooklyn to play with the teammates he wanted. But now he's being given an ultimatum to basically decide between playing against...

    Because it would be counterproductive to deciding his own fate (the 1st time he's had that). He was drafted to Cleveland (didn't choose), then was traded to Boston (not on his preferred destination...

    Agree with all except the "role player" title. But I think the problem is Philly has two of those, and they're both making more than Embiid.

    It's not that CJ or Fox move the needle more than Simmons, it's that as a GM, I absolutely can't have that blow up in my face. Too risky.
