If you're Philadelphia, do you trade Markelle Fultz for Kemba Walker?
Im sure the 76ers wont do this but it might be their best move. Embiid is such an injury risk that they should be building a roster that can compete for a championship in the next 3 years. Its sad but most likely Embiid is going to have a Yao like career. Making drastic win now moves might be able to get them a couple deep playoff runs and then they can move on to a team built around Simmons
The Sixers should definitely not trade Fultz for Kemba. Kemba doesn't make them a contender. Simmons is their current and future PG and Kemba isn't a good fit. As for Embiid, the Sixers clearly aren't that concerned with his long term health considering they signed him to a max deal with rather limited financial protections. Embiid has had no foot issues since his 2nd surgery. The same surgery that Durant had after his 1st surgery didn't work. From what I've read, Ilgauskas, who came back to have and long career, and Yao had much more significant foot issues than Embiid.
If I'm the Sixers, I'd try to get Sweet Lou or Tyreke. Both of them are on 1 year contracts so they won't hurt next season's cap space but they'd provide offensive firepower that the Sixers need to make the playoffs this season. In the offseason, I'd probably go aggressively after Paul George. Simmons, Covington, George, Embiid and Fultz (if he gets his act together) would be a nasty starting lineup.
