Hot take: I think the deal Morey proposed isn't even enough for Ben Simmons, so here is a solid Ben for CJ trade.

Trade

  • Ben Simmons

  • Seth Curry

  • Shake Milton

  • 2023 2nd 76'ers

    for

  • Deni Advija

  • CJ McCollum

  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

  • 2025 and 2027 unprotected 1st (Wizards)

  • 2022, 2024, and 2026 1st pick swaps (Wizards)

  • 2025 unprotected 1st (Mavericks)

Roster

  • CJ McCollum

  • Tyrese Maxey

  • Matisse Thybulle

  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

  • Furkan Korkmaz

  • Danny Green

  • Deni Advija

  • Tobias Harris

  • Georges Niang

  • Paul Reed

  • Andre Drummond

  • Joel Embiid

You can mix and match the lineups to whatever you see best, but this 76'ers team is a legit 12 man rotation with great versatility and upside.


Logic for other teams

T-Blazers: Rui gives the team more upside and versatility on the wing, a much better fit for Portland than CJ

Wizards: Secure Bradley Beal's future in DC by trading for an all-star that's a DPoY candidate

Mavs: Massively upgrade the talent offensively and ridding themselves of Dwight Powell and Trey Burke's contracts
