SIXERS BEN FOR HIELD, DRAGIC, 2 1’S, 2 2’S? JUST A RUMOR FOR NOW!

By Peter Gleason

The Sixers season may be two months away, but the Ben Simmons trade rumor machine just keeps on cranking two months to the day after their game 7 meltdown to the Hawks.

In a new trade suggestion from Bleacher Report, they have the Sixers moving Simmons to the Sacramento Kings in a deal that involves the Toronto Raptors as a third team.

The deal:

Sixers receive: Buddy Hield, Goran Dragic, a 2022 first-round pick and a 2024 first-round pick from the Kings, a 2023 second-round pick and a 2025 second-round pick from the Raptors

Kings receive: Simmons

Raptors receive: Marvin Bagley III and Furkan Korkmaz

B/R on the deal for the Sixers:

Hield is on a short list of the game’s greatest quantity-plus-quality shooters, and he’s been a 19-point scorer since the start of 2018-19. Dragic would scratch an itch for perimeter shot-creation having just completed a campaign in which he averaged 18.1 points, 5.9 assists and 2.5 threes per 36 minutes. The four draft picks would give Daryl Morey ammunition to chase an impact piece in a separate swap.
