There still hasn’t been a Ben Simmons trade and the Philadelphia 76ers still have their focus on landing a superstar like Damian Lillard in a potential trade. While Lillard remains intent on leading the Portland Trail Blazers to success, there’s an intriguing hypothetical NBA trade scenario to ponder if those intentions were to change.
The Philadelphia 76ers have underachieved for years now and it is time for a chance. That change is going to be at the top of the offense. Simmons’ offensive game has yet to improve and at this point, it is unknown when it will.
A change of scenery is necessary for Simmons as the Sixers get a fresh start. This is a team that is expected to be at the top of the Eastern Conference once again but has struggled with some issues early on this season. On top of that, the Simmons’ saga is not coming to an end anytime soon.
The Portland Trail Blazers have not pulled the trigger on a deal yet either. Unlike the situation in Philly, the Blazers do not need to act as quickly. The storyline has been surrounded by Damian Lillard and whether or not he will request a trade.

Nothing has happened just yet and the All-Star point guard says he will not be asking for one. If this is the case, the Trail Blazers might not want to move him. If Lillard requests a trade and blows it all up, Portland might not have a choice. Things change on a dime in the NBA, so his situation remains one to monitor.
This is a chance for both teams to see some major changes. Here is what that potential blockbuster deal between the Portland Trail Blazers and Philadelphia 76ers could look like.
