The Philadelphia 76ers and New Orleans Pelicans are going to be two very intriguing teams to keep an eye on this NBA offseason. With both teams needing to make some moves to get into serious contention, could they come together on a potential Ben Simmons trade that would pair him with Zion Williamson?
It’s a crazy thought, but one that may not be too far-fetched.
Simmons has been rumored to be a potential trade candidate this offseason. Elton Brand has said that he plans to keep Simmons and Joel Embiid together moving forward for the 76ers. However, that could change if the Pelicans came in with an aggressive trade offer.
For the Pelicans, they are tired of being stuck in mediocrity. They have a great, young roster, but they need another star to pair with Williamson. Simmons could very well be that guy.
Let’s dive in and take a look at a potential trade between the Pelicans and 76ers that would send Ben Simmons to New Orleans.
