I canít see either team wanting to do that deal.
Most people say Simmons is rubbish and although heís essentially an NBA veteran, I donít think you can have a clear view of his potential until he leaves the 76ers.
Him and Embiid were never going to work, and Iíd say not only has it made Simmons look worse but I think trying to find a role he was never suited to has affected his confidence.
If you remember the leaked tweets of Brian Colangelo, they revealed he was critical of Embiidís work ethic and poor diet, not Simmons. Colangelo actually wished Joel would raise his commitment to Simmonsí stands.
IMO, Simmons main issue is he too concerned with his image and thus a fear of failure. These issues may be connected to his stubbornness, as he seems unwilling to accept Ďoutsideí help. He apparently rebuffed shooting suggestions from JJ Redick and I believe his trainer is still his brother not a elite expert like a Drew Hanlen.
Honestly he should have never signed that last deal and left the 76ers, when it became clear the team was built around Embiid.
He needs to change his mentality and get into a better situation, but not based on how close the franchise is to the beach.
