    Kemba is a good PG and isn't scared to shoot.

    They could also trade the 6 for a win now piece like Siakam.

    Wall is certainly not afraid to shoot.

    And is still a whizz in transition.

    DO IT MOREY!!!

    These have to be joke proposals at this point...if not, Morey is really trashing his rep as a good GM because if no one takes Simmons then he's left with a disgruntled star player.

    I mean he's making a mistake offering Ben at all, makes him seem desperate. Should have just kept up the "We love Ben and prepare to start next season with him" routine.

    Kemba is always injured. They cant afford siakam as they already pay max to Embiid, Harris and Simmons

    i feel like the league is blackballing morey in trade discussions since trading cp3 and the china comments,

    Does anyone believe if more was in charge of the harden trade we would have gotten nearly what we got back with stone

    seems like teams around the league are making it difficult on morey on purpose

    Yes. Yes, I do. In fact, we may have gotten more. Because the problem is that of the two teams we were seriously negotiating with, MOREY RAN ONE OF THEM. I bet we'd have gotten a much better offer from Philly if Morey wasn't at the helm.

    Why do you always think there's a conspiracy?

    I think most teams just don't want to trade every valuable young player they have PLUS lottery picks for Ben Simmons. I don't think there is any more to it than that. Ben Simmons isn't worth what they are seeking, Morey is going to have to lower his price DRAMATICALLY or deal with Simmons another season.

    Actually Wall and Gordon for Simmons and Harris works. Just those contracts are so fat with Harris and Simmons.

    …and Harris has an additional year.

    $35,995,950
    $37,633,050
    $39,270,150

    Wall
    $44,310,840
    $47,366,760

    I’m good. (and apparently Rafael is too.)

    Give me an an unprotected first pick in 2023 and I'll take that Harris contract of your hands. You can have Wall in the process.

    I'm surprised Elton has not been relieved yet. I doubt Morey takes anything he says seriously. He really sucked at building a team.
