Sixers should trade Embiid for Rudy Golbert, Bagdonovich, and a pick. With that team you'd have a run and gun, uptempo, athletic juggernaut. Embiid is a great player, but his refusal to get into optimal/prime shape reflects in occasional lethargic play and reoccurring injuries.

If we had kept fultz then we might have another player to handle The ball for Ben Simmons 😐

Embied has Some kind of Degenerative Knee Problem. They have No Point Guard or Shooting Guard. They need To Trade with The Spurs who have A Hundred Guards and little Big Men.

Why blame the coach, when he had complimentary pieces he took them to a game from the Eastern conference finals. He wasn't the one who chose to pay Al horford and Harris instead of Reddick

It’s actually sad how much sixers fans don’t appreciate their team, I’m a bulls fan so that should explain enough. Be happy you’re team has two great players and the fact that you can actually make the playoffs every year!

Not sure Embid was dissing his fans by shooshing. I think he was just saying dont tell anyone how good I am. Overreaction I think.

I don't like this league...People ring chasing by trading players and trying to build a super team......thing is, there is this thing called chemistry...If half these team simply stay together, they should get better. Ben and Joel are young and need to be coached correctly. Sixers have the ingredients, but a poor cook.

SAS is such a star fu**er. Yes they should consider it. His value will probably go down so might as well trade him value is higher.

Embid should come off the bench. He could be the scorer in the seconds and still drop 25 a game. It would allow Simmons to play his style of game better with Horford.

No don't get rid of Simmons or Embiid Or change the roster to much . Their loaded with talent! Stephen A is 100% right it's the coach , and Ben has to be able to develop a shot . Those are the two key factors I believe .

Don't trade Embiid. We need him to pound inside and also block shots. He should stop shooting threes. Improve his fitness by running more 3km time trials. Better diet with more salad and fish.

Just saw a suggestion for Lavine, him, Simmons and Embiid would be such a good trio as Lavine can carry the ball up and create his own shots but you don't want him doing it all the time as he doesn't always pass. Lately has though and become more of a leader. I'm a Bulls fan as well, I obviously don't want to see him go but his talents are rotting here as he's the only above good player on the team. Fultz would have been a perfect project alongside Coby White (seems more of a shooter than playmaker). Guess it would have to be a 3 team trade as Tobias Harris wouldn't work at all for us as we have Otto and Lauri

If the Raptors could trade anyone except for the core of the team (td3 is core) plus picks for embiid we should do it. Gasol can mentor embiid and maybe ibaka+ picks and some of our prospects can make philly pull the trigger. Ibaka would give them all they need and opens up the court for Simmons. But dealing with the enemy is rare and its hard to trade embiid to any eastern team.

The only reason why embid is tired is because his back tired of carrying Simmons. Even I shoot better from 3 than simmons

You trade Coach Brown before you trade Embiid. The Sixers are a big money wealthy team, they could've paid Jimmy even with the salary cap but he wanted the sun and fun of Miami and to pilot his own team. The Heat are a surprisingly good team but when it comes down to the wire, they're a bunch of rookies running with Jimmy, and that won't win them a ring....at least not this year. The Sixers literally had too much talent with Jimmy Butler. And it was obvious they should have held on to Fultz, especially considering they got basically nothing for him.

These are the few times i disagree with stephen a. Embiid needs to get out of the lump clay standard. He is like howard during his time with the rockets. Simmons is getting slow by embid. Embid should go to the knicks. Its not the coach fault if embiid is a cry baby and half baked.

Trade Simmons for Zach Lavine + draft picks. Simmons is too limited offensively to ever get a team to a championship.
