    Which would you rather have?

    I take player A due to age. But when you reveal the names, people seem to like Player B a lot better. If I were the Sixers, I'd prefer player A in a trade for Simmons.
    Without looking it up I'm almost certain this is Sexton vs CJ.

    CJ is a #2, while Sexton is a #1 as well as the points brought up by the last poster. I particularly think Sexton would be okay value for Simmons. But to make the salaries work you have to include Love.

    I just see neither team being interested.

I have a bunch embiid would murder player a it they played together, especially if you're trying to say player A should be a large part of the return for Simmons.
    He's a kid (with some talent) on a terrible team, with a terrible coach and a terrible front office. Still could turn out to become a quality piece on a contending team. The upside is there.

    Player B could start declining within the next few years.

    Do you think Simmons will show any glimmer of motivation to improve being traded to a bad team, given that just less than 3 months ago one player there said everyone wants to be traded away?

    He is also a pick-and-roll playmaker. The Sixers should be looking to add a second primary not a second Tobias Harris. Sexton is a bigger gamble. In term of play style and potentially he could be much bigger reward. I would love to see it.

    I was thinking why would the 76ers want Sexton and Love? Seems like a Sexton, Nance, Prince, Dotson package makes more sense.

    The fact that you're trying to trade a 22 year old playmaker when your team has been garbage since LeBron left and shows very little glimmer of immediate hope should tell you everything you need to know about him. Bucks fans always did the same crap with John Henson. Sexton is better than Henson, but it's always wanting to trade your guy but wildly over valuing him in your proposals.

    You trade sexton to free up garland to play on ball more and because he's going to get more expensive. Simmons doesn't solve that problem. Simmons is more expensive and has to be on the ball to have any offensive value. He's a better fit in the sense he will pass more and is a better defender. But if the reason for trading sexton is to free up on ball duties for garland, you're not solving that.

    Good point. Sexton has a hell of a lot of talent though. Id really like for them to work it out.

    What about this trade for fun. 3 way trade.

    Sixers get Kemba, Love, Cavs #3 pick

    OKc gets Harris, Philly first round pick 2022

    Cavs get Simmons

    Cavs getting pick #3 did Sexton no favors. Suggs or Green are incoming. Sexton gonna go so another team can pay him.

    Probably gonna be Bledsoe and #10 for Sexton, Prince, and some kinda protected 1st and/or pick swap.

    I doubt 2 old, overpaid, injury prone guys is what Embiid, Doc, and Morey have in mind.

    If Sexton is traded whoever gets him will be really excited about him at least for a short time. I think he is talented as hell. There will definitely be a honeymoon period and then we will see how things shake out.

    He's quite a chucker, allegedly a Gilbert guy too. Hopefully the Cavs don't hold onto him or pick him over Garland, for VeeRex sake.

    My hope is that Morey will make a move sooner rather then later.
