    Chris Paul has been on 5 teams and he's arguably the best PG of his generation.

    Let's replace a guy who's crazy and can't shoot, for a guy who's even crazier and passes the ball when he's in the air 1 foot from the rim at 6'10.

    Didn't Simmons say he can't play right now because his tummy hurt or something?

    Man, I wish we had the cap and assets to go out and get him. One of my favorite young non-stars in the league.

    I think he has IT. He really impressed me in the playoffs and he's off to a great start this season. He's not afraid of the moment. He has confidence and the game to back it up.

    Honestly the Hawks are in a good position to get a superstar if they want to package a few of their young guys and picks.

    yeah, gallinari's a big expiring. add bogdan and reddish, and i start listening if i have a star to move. puts them in the right salary range to take one on, too.

    that said, their payroll is pretty large already.

    If Philly can extract Hunter, Reddish and Bogdan - I pack Simmons bags for him if I'm the Sixers.

    guessing they can't. hunter's looking like one of the league's top defenders right now.

    i'd be curious to see simmons with a pg who can really shoot it, though. to me, the mccollum trade has made sense the whole time. morey just can't check his ego and get it done. philly could probably get a 1st with him, just not, you know, seven of them.

    Morey accepts that offer IF ATL adds 4 first round picks, 8 seconds, and a partridge in a pear tree.

    The question is, does Simmons make the Hawks more of a legit title contender? Would that trade even make the Hawks better than Philly?

    maybe not. if you subscribe to the theory that your title chances are only as good as your best player (and basically, only the 2004 pistons present a great argument against this), then neither atl or philly has a chance regardless.

    I'm on the fence with Embiid, if they added those three players and only give up Simmons? I think Philly could be legit if Embiid balled out.
