Both the Philadelphia 76ers and Chicago Bulls have been mentioned in many rumors to this point in the season. There have not been many blockbusters coming out of either town but that could change in the upcoming weeks. With the current state of both teams, they could decide to get together for a trade.
The Philadelphia 76ers are off to a good start this season looking like one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. This is led by Joel Embiid, who is looking like a candidate for MVP early in the season. Tobias Harris is another player who is off to a good start and seems to be earning his huge contract. The front office added an Danny Green and Seth Curry Long the perimeter to help the team from three-point range.
One name we did not mention was Ben Simmons. He is filling up the stat sheet in a few ways but has had trouble scoring the ball this season. His jumpshot continues to be nonexistent while his scoring numbers are down a lot.
The Bulls are a team that could be in play for Simmons as they try to rebuild their roster. Chicago has not traded Zach LaVine yet but that does not mean that a deal will not happen prior to the deadline.
LaVine would be a perfect fit in Philadelphia. His skill set with translate well to a contending team. Here is what it might take to land LaVine in Philly.
