Trade Ben Simmons to the SUNS for Paul, Crowder, Galloway and Moore. Booker alongside Ayton, Simmons, Bridges and Johnson and Paul with Embiid and Tobias balances out both teams

Need you guys to shoot this down: 4 team trade where Portland gets Beal by way of trading Lillard to Philly who in return send either Milton or (hopefully not) Maxey to Portland, #28 draft pick to DC, and Simmons to GS where GS send both their 7 and 14 draft picks along with Weismann and Wiggins to DC. Every team gets a pretty good deal and instantly makes each conference more competitive. Philly gets their guy in Lillard. Portland can create the dynamic duo that the 90s Chicago Bulls had but with an added twist if they score Maxey. GS instantly is put into the take it all conversation with Simmons at point and defending with Greene. The splash brothers can take the burden of shooting. Then you have DC bringing in a boatload of young talent and draft picks in one nice clip.

gotta love magic overall such a great guy. yeah some of the gm stuff in lala i didn’t always agree with but it just shows how much basketball IQ he has even off the court let alone on it, and how obsessed he is with the game still literally seems like he never misses a game😂👍

Ben Simmons for CJ. Dame has enough firepower plus I think Anfernee can eventually follow in Cj's shoes.. Simmons trade market is down so its a perfect time to make the trade. Next trade is get is Nurkic. Jokic ate Nurkic up for breakfast. Resign Powell and let crippled Zack Collins go. Resign Enes and get a defensive center for Nurkic.

I'm disgusted with these former players. Magic a 6'9 guard has created a legacy as a giant point guard, is here talking about another technically better gifted player's failings at a position pattern off his own. Give Ben a roster like any of the ones he played on, then ask him the same question. Can Philly win with Simmons. They need a scoring point guard and play BS at 3 with some role players.

You see how they did that? Do you really believe this years biggest story is about. Ben Simmons or Kevin Durant? Ben Simmons was NoT on a historically stacked team and was never regarded as the best player in the NBA yet, Ben is the target? It’s not shocking that this happened to Ben, we were wondering, going into this playoffs (and all due respect to Ben) how stable he was going to be. But the best player in the NBA with TWO top 6 NBA players on his team NOT being able to get his team to the finals? And do t tell me about Kyrie and Harden being hurt, Embid was hurt too and KD with two top 6 1st ballot HOFs couldn’t even get to the ECFs. THAT IS THE STORY. Ben Simmons is being used as a distraction. Stop it.

Yea...u gotta hold Doc available. Max is right and if he didn't have the track record he has, I wouldn't put it past him. BUT he has had multiple great teams and can't lead them into championship games, so he's part of the problem. Holdem all accountable. Also, Sometimes Magic likes to through the wrong ppl under the bus, like when he publicly ridiculed Schroder and didn't say anything about LA's overpaid aging "king" who was pedestrian in this years playoff. Seems like Magic looks out for his ppl and doesn't hold everyone accountable.

Yeah doc won in 2008, but the league has completely changed since then. The teams he has coached since have not suited todays NBA. Now you need at least 2 legit superstars on your team and/or a lineup where 4 or 5 guys can knock down a three. Ben Simmons is neither of those things.

Hope that Ben Simmons will become more serious and practice his free throws and shooting in order for him to be good again and prove himself that he is still worthy and not a messed up person. Hope he realize his weaknesses and improve more in his summer break.

Magic Johnson was a great player, but his basketball analysis are as if he never played. Ben Simmons just caught a mental block due to unexpected hack-a-Simmons tactics. It is something that CAN BE FIXED. He is 24, 3 x all star, 2 x all-defensive 1st team player. Really, you are going to trade him NOW? When his value is so low? I can see why you failed miserably as GM Magic...what a joke. Lebron had similiar mental block in 2011 against Dallas in the NBA Finals. He go embarassed, got humbled...went to work over the summer and came back stronger. I have no doubt Ben Simmons will be OK.

imagine if the sixers have cp3 rather than Ben Simmons... Or imagine Jamal Murray with Joel Embiid Imma said it, Ben Simmons is a semi-bust because he didn't even try to improve his weaknesses. That is SOFT!!! His mentality is too soft. If he keeps performing like this, he is just another stat-good-looking player. He will never be the next Lebron or Magic, he only will become a slightly better Draymond Green type of player. And the funny thing is, Draymond is a better perimeter shooter than he is. A first pick with this little kind of impact in a crucial game??? I'd call that player a semi-bust, Don't you think?
