Indiana Pacers Receive: G/F Ben Simmons
Brooklyn Nets Receive: C Myles Turner, G Buddy Hield

Whether this deal is plausible boils down to one question: would the Indiana Pacers want Ben Simmons.

It’s not the easiest question to answer. One could be justified in still seeing Simmons as a potential cornerstone. When he’s healthy, he’s one of the best defensive players in the NBA. Furthermore, his floor vision is among the league’s elite as well.

With that said, that “when he’s healthy” caveat is a huge one. It doesn’t necessarily happen too often. Furthermore, some psychological issues seem to be at play with Simmons. They may partly explain why he’s unwilling to shoot threes.

One thing is certain: Simmons is a polarizing player. With that said, the Nets may not even wish to part with him. In fact, Turner would be the perfect stretch big man to compliment him. They may seek to acquire Turner in order to pair him with Simmons.
