All indications suggest that the Sixers’ top priority on the trade market is Damian Lillard, Kyle Neubeck of The Philly Voice writes. Trading for Lillard would solve many of Philadelphia’s issues, giving them a dynamic scoring threat and more balanced partner to Joel Embiid, who is fresh off of signing a four-year, super-max extension.
So what would a Lillard-for-Ben Simmons deal look like? Neubeck believes that it would take Simmons, Tyrese Maxey, and several first-rounders to trade for Lillard should the point guard request a trade.
It’s worth noting that no deal is likely to happen before the season with talk around the league indicating that Lillard is content with giving new coach Chauncey Billups and the Blazers a chance to see how things go heading into the season.
