Philadelphia 76ers Receive: G Damian Lillard
Portland Trail Blazers Receive: G/F Ben Simmons, G Tyrese Maxey, 2022 First Round Pick, 2024 First Round Pick

This would be a huge blockbuster deal for both sides that reshapes both conferences.

Damian Lillard would be the centerpiece of this trade and it would allow the Philadelphia 76ers to part ways with Ben Simmons.

Lillard would be the lone player being moved in this trade to Philadelphia. In order to land one of the best point guards in the NBA, it would not come cheap for the Sixers, to say the least.

Simmons would lead the way going back to Portland, along with Tyrese Maxey. The level of play Maxey has provided the Sixers while Simmons has held himself out makes him all the more intriguing in a potential trade for a superstar.
