    In lieu of the rumors....

    As long as we're not talking about next year's 1st, the last Brooklyn pick, or the last two swaps....

    Definitely.

    I just don’t understand why people want a player that can’t hit an outside shot at that salary in the year 2021. This is not the 80’s-90’s anymore. He is literally the extreme opposite of Curry and he just went to 5 finals series. Ugggghhhhh

    :D...Interesting response..Dude, YOU the one that's trippin.Consider for a moment that rumors of a deal are true. Multiple picks would have to be attached with Wall to get Simmons & Maxey. This makes it a relevant question. If you're not on board for paying the freight fine, but....

    You can talk me into 2 firsts. I feel confident we can get at least that back if we move him in the future. Beyond that and I am nervous. If he had a huge year you can get way more if we needed to flip him for whatever reason - but if anything happens (injury, more wild non-shooting hi-jinx) his value will further plummet. And it ain't high now.

    I do it so I can get rid of Wall then as soon as I get a good enough deal, I trade Ben too.

    people think John Lucas or Silas will magically fix him and Simmons will all of the sudden be willing to do things and change his game for what was the worst team in the league coming to a situation he did not want to be in when him being traded for Harden was a possibility

    a lot of the pro-Simmons people seem delusional

    Wall, Gordon and MIL 1st for simmons plus filler.

    Morey can kick rocks but if he says yes then simmons can be our Draymond.

    That's too much money going to Philly.

    Replace EGo with House, with Thybulle or Korkmaz coming back with Simmons.

    I was completely against trading harden for Simmons, but this is something I’d be open to since Wall isn’t going to play for us anyways.
    But I can’t see Morey giving us Simmons.

    It’d take at least a mid FRP to move wall now. Maybe less if we wait until the trade deadline to see who needs a PG.

    Simmons value is a buy low proposition now and would take at least 2 FRP’s + filler. 3 if those are likely late FRP’s.

    so yeah it’d likely take 3-4 picks to get it done. I don’t hate the deal but still wouldn’t do it. Rather wait until the deadline to see if we can move wall without attaching picks. Let the young guys play, get a good draft position this year and roll with youth development and cap space in 2023.

    the only way I can see doing this deal is if the rockets are sure they can rehab Simmon’s value.
