Pod: Will Ben Simmons Be Traded Before the Deadline?

The most interest he’s shown in anything in months.

No football? No problem; there’s plenty of Sixers talk to be, uh, talked, and this week, the guys, um, talk it.

The rundown:

• Turns out, the guys are decidedly not excited about the Winter Olympics, and Joe is already annoyed by the mere mention of NFL OTAs

• One of the guys thinks he’s clever, and the other one may have forgotten how many items are in a trifecta in this week’s “What Are You Drinking?” (3:45)

• The Sixers are playing well, and that is because of three people: 1) Joel Embiid, 2) Tyrese Maxey, and 3) Joel Embiid again (4:49); come for the Embiid praise, stay for the random Carson Wentz potshot!

• The question on everyone’s mind: will Ben Simmons be traded this week? The guys take (different) sides (22:33)

• If he does get traded, be it now or later, John shares his top five trade targets before the guys discuss the possibility of James Harden, 76er, for the second time in about 13 months (26:45)

• How would Ben Simmons do in Brooklyn? What other dominoes could a Simmons-for-Harden swap set into motion? (34:55)

• Is anyone on the Sixers’ roster outside of Joel Embiid untouchable? The obvious answer is obvious, but what about the rest? (38:55)

This Sequel Sucked: The Sixers' Season is Over The Philly Frenetics Podcast

After the Sixers' season ended with a whimper against the Miami Heat last week, the guys discuss what went wrong (4:31) before Joe asks John to Fill in the Blank (12:28).  Then, John turns the tables and puts Joe on the spot about some more long-term effects of the team's fourth second-round exit in five years (22:03).
