Of course they do. I want to write this story while sitting on a beach in Fiji. Desire for something does not make it real, and Harden didn’t look like the guy who wanted to leave Brooklyn.
That Harden is the dream and one of 30 or so 76ers GM Daryl Morey will trade Simmons Posted by Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, but he also mentioned that he’s talking about a more realistic scenario: a trade with Detroit brings in Jeramy Grant Back to Philly.
League sources said the team has been engaged in ongoing discussions with the Detroit Pistons to acquire Grant, another striker, a young player and a pick against Simmons. One of the sources said the power is forward/middle Kelly Olynyk The swingman second year be honest with you They are mentioned as players that could be included in a potential deal. However, a source said it was not likely to include Pistons Bay, a Villanova product, or Aolinique.
A person close to the Sixers said the team wanted a more high-profile player from Grant in exchange for Simmons. The source added that the team had not spoken to the Pistons recently.
But multiple sources said The Sixers did, and that discussions were centered around Grant.
This seems closer to the reality of Simmons Trade Market The truth about his trade value as he’s still far from the team saying he’s not mentally ready to play. Grant is averaging 18 points per game this season, down from 22.3 last season, and he is one of several players to have seen his shooting numbers dip now that fans are back in the building (30.9% from 3 this season, when he was. by 35% or higher in the past several seasons). Grant was never an All-Star but has grown into a quality player who can spread the word and bring impressive sportsmanship to the court. That’s why he recruited Philadelphia to the second round of Syracuse in 2014.
Simmons will attend a talent upgrade to rebuild Detroit. However, how does it mesh with the rookie and young face of the franchise Kid Cunningham It is up for discussion. Bringing Simmons means that the ball is in Cunningman’s hands less often.
Pompey says then that some in the front office 76ers want to hold on to Simmons and wait for a signature and trade for Harden, a favorite of Morey when they were both in Houston together.
Harden’s dream of wanting to get out of Brooklyn is just a dream. Yes, the Nets offered a four-year contract extension worth a maximum of $161 million to Harden and he chose not to sign it, but there are 62 million reasons for that. After that season ends, Harden can sign up for his $47.4 million contract for the 2022-23 season, then sign a four-year extension worth $223 million. Additionally, Harden said, “I don’t plan to leave this organization and the situation we’re in” (played on a competitor next to Kevin Durant, With maybe one day Keri Irving join them).
Conversations with Detroit, if still going on at some level, are nowhere near complete. The fact remains that it is unlikely that any trade talks with Simmons will become serious before December 15 – when most players signed this summer can be traded – and that the Simmons saga will run into 2022, and possibly until the February 10 trading deadline.
And perhaps beyond that.
