Ok this is all hypothetical and verrrry convoluted.... but if Philly fails to meet expectations this year, instead of moving Embiid, maybe they shop Simmons. I think he could create a bigger return OR facilitate a much better fit. Simmons would thrive best with a lineup filled with shooters. So. Why not send him out West to the best shooting team who also happen to be a sleeping giant: the Warriors.

Warriors will be armed with a top 3 pick and a trade-able Wiggins. But I am not suggesting that Wiggins should go to Philly. Philadelphia should get a pure point guard who is ready to win now and squeeze the most out of this current roster. So here's the trade.

Warriors get Ben Simmons

Philly gets Chris Paul, 2 firsts of their choice via okc

Okc gets Andrew Wiggins, GS 2020 first

Warriors get to surround Simmons with crazy good shooters and add a big time defender. With D-Lo on the roster, there was no way to make the most of all the offensive talent. This is a better fit. This helps them return to contention immediately.

Philly gets Paul who is having a fantastic year and looks like he has a little left in the tank. He could do wonders with his passing and shooting. This is a much better on the court fit. The firsts will be late but help recoup some of the future value they lose by dealing Simmons.

Okc sheds salary and consolidate some picks to get another future building block for their young team. They could add sweetener to either other team to make the deal happen. Plus, Wiggins is no slouch and allows SGA to run the point.

How crazy far off would this be? I know it's not perfect but a very interesting hypothetical to me. The big thing is to facilitate what I think is a better fit for both Philly and GS while rewarding OKC.

That GS pick should go to philly.

Philly would get way more for Simmons.

Phili would rather just cut OKC out and take the top 3 pick. Worst case scenario, they could flip it for something way better than Paul.
