This Sixers-Timberwolves trade features Ben Simmons and D’Angelo Russell

It was made clear when the Philadelphia 76ers hired Daryl Morey and Doc Rivers that they did not want to trade either of their NBA stars, Ben Simmons or Joel Embiid. Moving forward, this notion might change if the team is offered a return where they cannot say no. The Minnesota Timberwolves are a team that might be able to offer them one of those deals such as this.

The 76ers past the point of calling this thing “The Process” and getting to the point of frustration. Their constant disappointment come postseason time led to the firing of Brett Brown. Fans are hoping that Rivers is the right coach to take this team to the next level.

There was a clear emphasis in the NBA offseason from the 76ers to add more help from three-point range in the form of Danny Green and Seth Curry. The duo of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid is still strong but it has been given plenty of time and has not worked yet. If the team decides to deal one for a huge return, it will be hard to argue against.

The 76ers need to find a trade partner interested in adding a star and have plenty of assets to send back as a return. Enter Minnesota. The Timberwolves have one of the top bigs in the NBA in Karl-Anthony Towns.

The Timberwolves added D’Angelo Russell last season using a trade with the Golden State Warriors in a deal centered around Andrew Wiggins. Minnesota then used the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft on Anthony Edwards, who has looked like the real deal early on. Minnesota could look to create an elite duo with Simmons and Towns in this trade.

In today’s NBA, a point guard is extremely important. Simmons has great value but his three-point prowess leaves plenty of doubt. If they Sixers believe he is the one to be traded, this deal could send him to Minnesota.
