Man the Sixers are fun. Embiid says after the game he is 69% healthy and taunts Lavar Ball on Instagram. Simmons jokes that Embiid stole one of his rebounds (Simmons missed a triple double by a rebound) and Embiid responds by apologizing.

Simmons jokes that Embiid stole one of his rebounds (Simmons missed a triple double by a rebound) and Embiid responds by apologizing. Simmons and Embiid seem to be developing a nice chemistry. I hope they can both stay healthy and play good enough basketball to get beat by the C's in the ECF for many years.
Embiid looked slow and not very agile versus us. I think he's not in very good shape due to his offseason limitations, so you get some nights where he doesn't have his wind/legs right now.
Sixers win 3 quarters, including the 1st by 19, and still lose tongue Warriors by 8. A 47-15 3rd quarter will do that to you

In that scenario James stays in the East, which is an added benefit. However, it seems obvious they would need one more veteran piece/scorer/shooter. Portland's backcourt of Lillard and McCullom are possible targets if they underwhelm again this year. Fultz becomes trade bait at that point. Ideally, they also resign Reddick to a team-friendly deal. If the sixers started McCullom-Covington-James-Simmons-Embiid next year, that would be a tough team to beat. Backups would be Reddick-Holmes-Saric-McConnell-TLC-Korkmaz-Anderson.

Right now Fultz has little if any trade value.

Some teams may be a little leery of his 'injury', but I assure you the #1 pick in the most recent draft (who actually performed pretty well in Summer League) has plenty of trade value. The trade example above is definitely not out of the question.
