The issue with a GSW move is the financials are so tricky.

    Do you think he gets moved before the season or is there a hold out?

    Personally, I think if itís the Warriors it happens before camp. If itís the Kings it happens in camp.

    The biggest things delaying everything:

    1) Its not even the obvious of not shooting because some teams think they can fix that. Itís the insistence on not using team resources to do so. He keeps going to his own guys which includes his own brother. So can you convince him to trust someone outside his bubble.

    2) Itís not Moreys asking price. Plenty of stories out there of how willing he is to negotiate. So itís more other teams unwilling to discuss further than their first offer.

    3) No one knows what Ben wants. Heís got a notoriously tight circle. Basically his mom, dad, brother, Rich Paul. Thatís it. He doesnít like other people in it. So thatís why we get such conflicting reports of where he wants to be.

    4) Now weíve got the added complexity of Rich Paul not wanting any of his clients on the Sixers. So some teams are somewhat worried that if things donít go right year 1, will Rich Paul pull the same thing on them.

    5) With a deal, itís got to meet a certain criteria of the Sixers need a PG along with value that causes them to move him. But given the teams that want him want to play him at PF rather than PG. now this is a huge complication. Because thereís not many team with a surplus of starting quality guards who can bring the ball up for you.

    I think the positional and contract situation are issues that effect his value/teams willingness to take the risk. Ben Simmons is a big. He could be a good one. I donít get the feeling he has accepted who he is as a basketball player.

    I would be really surprised if he ended up with the Warriors.

    My trade idea -

    Wolves Receive:

    B. Simmons

    Sixers Receive:

    D. Murray
    M. Beasley

    Spurs Receive:

    T. Maxey
    T. Prince
    2 Timberwolves first round picks


    Works well for Philly and Minny, I think the only team that would hesitate is the Spurs, but Maxey looks promising, and 2 firsts for Murray feels fair. Maybe throw some additional pick swaps or another young guy like Milton their way.

    Philly rolls with

    Murray/Curry
    Beasley/Thybulle
    Green/Kork
    Harris/Scott or Tolliver or w/e
    Embiid/Drummond

    Minny has

    D'lo
    Ant
    McDaniels
    Simmons
    KAT

    He's a Rich Paul client and Rich Paul doesn't want any of his clients in Philly.

    If we can land Simmons and keep our trio plus Mcdaniels on top as a seemingly great role player type that would be a huge win for us.

    Or heck we can even give you guys Dragic too.

    I have this feeling that Simmons will end up a Raptor. I think our FO has gone bonkers for long athletic players.

    Siakam, OG, Barnes, Boucher, Birch, Precious, BongaÖ basically weíre doing what the kings are doing only with forwards lol
