Brown would go in a snap before Simmons if the choice were between the two.
Love Simmons but also love Brown's development...JB keeps growing every season

I'd do that deal since Simmon's defense is far superior but would be interested in knowing what BS wants to work on every summer. I'm not even talking about 3pt shooting with Ben. I'd want him working on those stop in the lane pull up 10ft shots (that Giannis/Hayward are so good at). He has shown legit growth at the FT line every season, so I'd be optimistic.

In the same breath, I could see if someone pointed to Jaylen's growth every season and his complimentary nature to Tatum/Kemba offensively. Simmons is pretty ball-dominant which CBS could adjust KWs usage. Anyways not happening, but interesting to kick around during the stoppage.

I think he meant Brett Brown, and “JB” was referring to Jimmy Butler.

At this point I think the best case scenario for this season would be a 2-3 week "pre-season" following by the playoffs starting immediately, with the current standings. It's fun to dream about, but who knows? Maybe Kemba and Simmons are 100% healed, or maybe Tatum will go three months between touching a ball and Embiid will weigh 300 pounds from main-lining shirley temples. It'd be a wonderful clash of styles that I'd pay to see.

Watching the 76ers play the Pacers without Brogdon/Sabonia. This team is a complete enigma.

I want Phila to be the 5th seed and have the C's get the Pacers in round 1 but maybe I'm wrong?

If I was starting a team and had Simmons I'd make him the PG on offense and the 5 on defense. Surround him with wings that can shoot and play D

The 76ers have been bad on the road all season, so in their minds, are these home games or away games? Their road problems are obviously not something easy or they would have fixed them before going 10-25. Can they fix them in the next few weeks?

They got bailed out big time tonight thanks to Shake Milton hitting a big three pointer tonight, but they were just a frantic clunky mess down the stretch. Their roster is just so awkward, and they are coached by a complete nincompoop.
