The NBA world watched as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Atlanta Hawks in Game 7, forcing the 76ers to reevaluate their roster moving forward. In a win-or-go-home game, Ben Simmons attempted just four shots, scoring five points for Philadelphia.

Given Simmons’ performance throughout the playoffs, the 76ers could very well consider trading the two-way point-forward this offseason, and the Golden State Warriors could be a potential landing spot.

There would be multiple pieces involved, and Golden State could elect to move on from some of their young players to acquire the three-time All-Star.
