Prime Trade Destinations for Philadelphia 76ers 3x All-Star PG Ben Simmons
The Rockets have previously been interested in Ben Simmons and could start their rebuild around him. Kevin Porter Jr., and Jalen Green are Houston’s young and promising playmakers. Both can play well off the ball and could benefit from a guy like Simmons on the ball getting him open looks (if KPJ isn’t included in the deal himself) with John Wall providing Philly with a much-needed veteran presence in this scenario with the type of salary to match Simmons’ monster deal for trade purposes.
New coach Stephen Silas could help develop Simmons’ offensive game like he did with KPJ once he landed in H-Town. Silas also helped lead Dallas to the highest offensive rating in NBA history during their 2019-20 season as an asst. coach. The biggest question is would 76ers GM Daryl Morey make a blockbuster trade with the franchise that employed him for over a decade.
