The unofficial start of the NBA trade season starts tomorrow, Dec. 15.
That’s when most players who signed contracts in summer free agency become eligible to be included in deals.
And for the Sixers, who have been in an epic struggle with crybaby Ben Simmons, tomorrow is the beginning of the rest of their NBA lives.
The 76ers are 12-5 with Joel Embiid in the lineup — including an impressive win over the Golden State Warriors on Saturday — and the franchise center has been brilliant despite an extended absence because of COVID-19.
Several of the teams floated before the season as possible destinations for Simmons — including the Pacers, Blazers, Sacramento Kings and Minnesota Timberwolves — are off to losing starts.
Time for Daryl Morey to work his magic!
