    Trade Suggestion: Fox for Simmons + #28

    If the Kings can get 28 plus an unprotected first in say 2026, I would be all over that. I think that might be a bridge too far though for Morey. That said, given their (Morey and McNair) backgrounds, I can see a much larger trade where Buddy/Barnes/Bagley goes to Philly and other pieces come...

    I would drive Buddy to the airport, so I hope you're right. :)

    Trade Suggestion: Fox for Simmons + #28

    I don't think we'd be selling low on Fox in the traditional sense. He played well this year. We'd sell low, if he continues to improve and jumps levels, and Simmons stagnates. But so can Simmons, who is like a few months older than Fox. Neither are in their primes. I think Simmons' ceiling...

    Trade Suggestion: Fox for Simmons + #28

    I doubt the 76ers would expect a star in return after Doc and Embid threw him under the bus. Perfect world, Buddy + #9 for Simmons. I don't think that gets Simmons though I'd love to try.

    Trade Suggestion: Fox for Simmons + #28

    It is the essence of buying low. Obviously, I have more belief in Simmon's talent than others here.

    Trade Suggestion: Fox for Simmons + #28

    I'm betting on the guy, who will make the right play than force it. Hali needs muscle, but I think next year, he's the better crunch time option whether Fox is here or not.

    Trade Suggestion: Fox for Simmons + #28

    Both can take turns bringing the ball up. Simmons can grab a board and go (he's elite doing so). In those situations, Hali can slide down and expand the court. He did that often this year and showed a deadly shot when he's catching and shooting. In half court sets, let Hali run the ball. He...

    Trade Suggestion: Fox for Simmons + #28

    I see it more as buying low on Simmons. He presents a unique blend of size, athleticism, and skill. And, age wise, Fox is 23 while Simmons is 24. So neither is a finished product. And between the two, Simmons unicorn rating is a big higher than Fox's (harder to find a 6'10 big with ball...

    Trade Suggestion: Fox for Simmons + #28

    Fox for Simmons + 28. Fox is the penetrating PG that the 76ers need. With Fox gone, Hali takes over the starting PG spot. Simmons slides in as the 4/3 for the Kings. The Kings take BPA at #9 (Jalen Johnson? Scottie Barnes? Davion Mitchell?) and grab Ayo Donsumu, Tre Mann, Herb Jones, or...

    Off season targets

    Replace Barnes for Buddy. Phi needs a PG. Number 9 gets them Davion Mitchell.

    Off season targets

    Fox would net Simmons straight up. Philly would likely pay more (like a first). They need a PG, who can create in the half court. That is Fox.

    [SI] De'Aaron Fox and the Kings Are Building for the Future

    And, as it relates to Trae, this thread is example number 1 of recency bias and example 2 of small sample size bias. Remember bubble Murray or bubble Herro? Easy to fall in love with players when they’re on the main stage. Once the Kings make the playoffs, boards from opposing teams will...

    [SI] De'Aaron Fox and the Kings Are Building for the Future

    Fox’s area under the curve is like at 85% on offense and like 55% on defense. At his absolute best, his improvements can grow incrementally on offense, but his improvements on defense has levels to go. Qualitatively speaking, there’s no reason why he can’t guard 1 to 3. 1 to 2, he can do now...

    Marvin Bagley will ball out next season!

    A better question is, is he working on the right things? Kinda like Ben McLemote, who’s biggest issue was his handles. Every off season, he’d show vids of him dunking. Still hasn’t improved his handles at all. But the did he work on his body question is valid. His peers, mainly JJJ and...

    Players that I would target with the 9th pick:

    I went to biz school with a buddy, who played high D1 hoops and is now a player dev coach in the NBA. Started as a scout with the Spurs, of all places. What you refer to as game speed, he calls wiring and upload speed. It’s real. For every Halliburton, there are thousands more, who can’t...

    2021 Workouts

    I loved that Loyola team during the tourney and especially Krutwig, He plays like a 6’8 ish version of Jokic. I don’t know if he can make that transition, because he doesn’t have Jokic’s size and lacks the foot speed to hang in the nba. Maybe he pulls a Kevin Love and loses 30 pounds? Worth...
