Comment Opinions Please. Is This Fair?

Trade 1

PHI: Doug McDermott

SAS: Tobias Harris, Isaiah Joe, 2023 2nd, & Potential 2029 More Favorable 1st Round Swap

Why? : With the addition of PJ Tucker to the squad & the Sixers reported interest in Eric Gordon, Tobias Harris should be moved in order to give PJ the starting PF spot & open up cap to land EG in a multi-team trade with Houston. It’s obvious that general manager Daryl Morey is trying to build a Houston 2.0 squad in Philadelphia, but this time with Joel Embiid & Tyrese Maxey on board. In this deal, the 76ers get off Harris’ contract & land a nice shooter in Doug McDermott while also generating over $25 million in extra money. And all it costs them is a young player in Isaiah Joe that they’re not using, a second, & future swap. Not a bad move for both teams if you ask me. Philly creates the opportunity they need to go after Eric Gordon while the Spurs add another pick in a loaded 2023 draft class along with a potentially very valuable swap 7 years from now.

Trade 2

PHI: Eric Gordon

HOU: Matisse Thybulle

Why? : Like I said before, GM Morey is trying to build Houston 2.0 around Embiid & Maxey, so acquiring Eric Gordon obviously makes too much sense after creating the necessary cap to land him. Gordon is still playing great basketball at the age of 33 & just shot 41.2% from beyond the arc last season with the Rockets, something Thybulle didn’t even come close to. Now I know the defense of Matisse will be missed, but his offensive issues lead to him getting exposed in the playoffs, where it matters most. For Houston, they land a nice defensive piece in Thybulle who’s still young at the ripe age of 25 years old & can be a long term piece going forward. He & Eason can most definitely form one of the best defensive duos in the league if everything goes well for the Rockets.

Trade 3

PHI: Patrick Beverley

UTA: Shake Milton & Furkan Korkmaz

Why? : Imagine having both Patrick Beverley & PJ Tucker on the same team, two defensive wasps who can guard, get into your head, & shoot the ball well from deep. Then you’ve also got another defensive specialist in De’Anthony Melton who can be slid to the two off the bench. The 76ers probably don’t need Beverley, but his intensity & leadership can definitely be valuable on a Philly squad trying to compete for a championship. And at the price they’re getting him for here, this would be a solid move for Philadelphia, since Shake Milton & Furkan Korkmaz both didn’t show up in the postseason last year. As for the Utah side of it, Pat Bev doesn’t seem like a long term fit there so acquiring two nice depth pieces around Mitchell for the time being sounds like a nice idea.

Free Agent Addition

LaMarcus Aldridge

Why? : The 76ers need a legit backup center behind Joel Embiid & who better than LaMarcus Aldridge right now with all the big man left in the free agent market. LA is someone who can space the floor & give you a solid 14-15 minutes off the bench. He’d be a nice fit next to both Harden & Maxey’s abilities to attack the basket & either score or kick it out.

β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”

Conclusion

After all these moves, Philadelphia is left with a super scary rotation around their two stars in Embiid & Harden that can go 11-12 man deep & compete with the best of them. They add defense, 3pt shooting, chemistry/familiarity, & veteran leadership with these multiple moves here. I truly feel after this plan I’ve created for the Sixers, they’ll be the favorite to come out of the eastern conference & compete for a ring.

76ers Ideal Starting Lineup:

Maxey, Harden, Gordon, Tucker, & Embiid

Backup Five:

Beverley, Melton, House, Niang, & Aldridge

Rest Of Bench:

Queen, Springer, McDermott, Reed, & Bassey
