    IMO, he badly wants CP3 on that team. CP3:Nash::Embiid:Stoudemire. Harris, Horford, Richardson and Simmons are all on the table.

    The Sixers need to make some changes...... although they are going to be VERY good under MDA.

    I wouldn't mind getting involved in a 3-4 team deal that nets Horford for Gordon.

    Hopefully D’Antoni wants Eric Gordon in Philly if hired.

    See trade forum (EGo x Josh Richardson/Mike Scott)

    Right. Because if the Rockets had a player like Embiid on the roster MDA wouldn’t have played him or properly utilized him.

    Got it.

    If anything dealing with ex-Rocket D’Antoni is going to be more difficult. Not sure why the assumption would be otherwise.

    It's wrong and a bad assumption.

    MDA loves Morey. Morey loves MDA. They built this team together. MDA loves the guys on this team. There is a reason his rotation was so small. He liked his guys.

    Eric, PJ and Danuel House now have a team that will value them more than 28 other teams in the NBA.

    I guess Morey owes MDA something? Lol

    NBA stands for best friends forever!

    You're living up to your name.

    Relationships help foster trades. They aren't necessary but they help.

    It's like that in any business. Deals happen a lot of times because of relationships fostered over many years.

    It's not a guess, it's a fact of life.

    MDA and Morey have a good working relationship. Rockets need bigs. Sixers need less bigs. There is a trade to be made if it makes sense for both parties.

    MDA is going to value Eric more than any other team in the NBA, including the Rockets.

    Sixers need to make some trades regardless of who their coaches are. Horford huge contract, Tobias Harris huge contract... Not sure Elton Brand knows what he is doing...

    That said, I cant imagine MDA being a good fit with Embid. His history with Gasol and Dwight and NYK Melo are clear redflags. Ball dominant low post players aren't exactly his kind of players.

    IMO MDA would be great in Indy and New Orleans.

    If it’s some big block buster type deal going down in future then it’s bye bye

    Russ
    Gordon
    Tucker
    House

    Hope it’s Joel but if not then Simmons.

    Exactly...and Joel has already voiced his displeasure about not being post up enough.

    Russ, Eric and Danuel for Ben, Shake and Richardson seems fair enough in a dream scenario where we make that big of a deal.

    Simmons / Shake
    Harden / Mclemore
    Richardson / Nwaba
    RoCo
    PJ/ Bruno

    That's a good starting point. Use the MLE for Baynes and get some depth.

    You gotta stop using Russ in these trade talks my man. Harden doesnt want him gone, he will not be gone. Unless you think we should just do this without Harden wanting it? And in that case...well that would be interesting lol.
