Trade for Dallas Mavericks to acquire Ben Simmons: 1. Sixers get haul
This trade would be the extremely rare double sign-and-trade. Both Tim Hardaway Jr. and Danny Green are set to be unrestricted free agents this summer. Sign-and-trades are difficult to make because it triggers the hard cap and limits flexibility for the remainder of that season. The Mavericks would have to weigh that when thinking about making this move.
Dallas has been interested in Danny Green in the past. They value his shooting and defense. He would be a fantastic fit next to Luka Doncic, but Philadelphia will not be eager to give him up.
The Mavericks trade away Tim Hardaway Jr., Maxi Kleber, and Dwight Powell to get Simmons and Green. They lose some depth but get the best player in the deal. The Sixers value the floor spacing of THJ and Kleber. They also get a first-round pick for taking back Powell to match up the salaries.
Will the Philadelphia 76ers trade Ben Simmons this offseason? Do the Dallas Mavericks try to jump into the sweepstakes if they do? The Mavs need to get a lead executive in place first, but they want to improve their roster this offseason. Fans should not rule out anything in attempting to accomplish that crucial goal. Stay tuned.
