The Philadelphia 76ers are entering what could very well be a major offseason of change. After being bounced out of the playoffs by the Boston Celtics in the first round, Elton Brand and company know that things need to be done. That is where the Golden State Warriors could come into play.
Granted, the 76ers may have zero interest in trading one of their stars. However, moving Ben Simmons could very well make sense for Philly.
From the Warriors’ perspective, bringing in a piece like Simmons could make sense. They would not have to part with Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson, but Simmons could fit in nicely with them. Whether he plays point guard and dishes to the shooters or gives the Warriors another style of offense, it could work beautifully.
It is going to be an interesting and crazy offseason in the NBA. With the coronavirus delaying the end of the 2019-20 season, no one truly knows when next season will start or what the financial ramifications will be.
All of that being said, let’s take a look at a potential trade for the 76ers that could send Ben Simmons to the Warriors.
