The Philadelphia 76ers and Utah Jazz each had high hopes entering the 2020 playoffs. The Jazz showed more potential led by Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert than Joel Embiid and the Sixers, but both fell short of their goal. Looking to the 2020 offseason, could these two teams find common ground on a league-altering blockbuster trade?
There has been some speculation around the 76ers already, as Doc Rivers takes over in his first season as head coach.
Could the 76ers shake things up in a big way?
If the 76ers look to trade one of their stars, Embiid or Simmons, it wouldn’t be a complete fire sale. Rivers did not come to Philadelphia to rebuild.
But if Rivers and new president of basketball operations Daryl Morey feel they can retool quickly after last year’s 76ers’ core came up short, there would be an interesting duo they could pursue.
Let’s take a look at a massive hypothetical trade between the Philadelphia 76ers and Utah Jazz hat would shake up both the Eastern and Western Conference.
