Ya, it could be a tricky fit and you are banking on Simmons developing some kind of shot. He seems to do just fine in the regular season, but he disappears in the playoffs and especially at the end of games.Indy wrote: ↑Mon May 06, 2019 11:13 amI think that really depends on who you put around him. He made zero threes this year. He played 2700 minutes and only took 6. He is the only non-center in the league to play that much without taking/making 3s. He would join Ayton in that category. So if we are going to have two players on the floor that can't stretch the floor, there wouldn't be much room to work.Split T wrote: ↑Mon May 06, 2019 10:26 amThere’s no actual rumblings that philly would look to move Ben Simmons, but he doesn’t seem to fit in Philly and some media have discussed moving him...Would you trade for him? He can be our 4 and our pg...needs to figure out how to be effective when he doesn’t have the ball.
You’d have to build the offense around him having the ball a lot, which could be nice for Booker. Sign another shooter to play at the 1(maybe Seth Curry)
A Simmons/Ayton PNR still puts 3 shooters around them.
Then you have booker run the offense when Simmons sits. You still run the risk of needing to put the ball in bookers hands at the end of games and Simmons becoming useless in the corner...
It’s an interesting thought, but I’m not sure it would work any better for us than it does for philly.
