Suggested Trade Exchanges Former Third Overall Draft Pick for Joel Embiid and PJ Tucker to the Sixers


At the moment, the Philadelphia 76ers can breathe easy as Joel Embiid has not requested a trade. However, should that change, the team would need to evaluate their best course of action. Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report has suggested a trade scenario involving the Sixers and the New York Knicks that could offer Philadelphia a new beginning. In Buckley's proposed deal between the Sixers and the Knicks, Philadelphia would acquire RJ Barrett, Evan Fournier, Immanuel Quickley, Isaiah Hartenstein, a 2024 first-round pick from the Wizards (with top-12 protection), a 2025 first-round pick from the Bucks (with top-4 protection), a 2028 first-round pick from the Knicks, and a 2030 first-round pick from the Knicks.

Bold Proposal: Envisioning a Spectacular Trade for Joel Embiid of the Sixers


The saying goes that where there's smoke, there's fire. When rumors hold significant weight, it's reasonable to suspect there's some truth fueling the speculation. This principle holds in the NBA as much as anywhere else, and currently, the Philadelphia 76ers are enveloped in substantial speculation – to the point where there's undeniable substance. The fact that James Harden desires a switch to a different team isn't just hearsay anymore; it's an established reality. Could a trade plea from Joel Embiid be the next development? This is where things become hazy. Time will ultimately provide clarity. Yet, there's valid cause for conjecture. Considering the Sixers would struggle to fill the void left by Harden, a significant regression could unsurprisingly prompt Embiid to seek a trade. Might the Sixers contemplate dispatching him to the Orlando Magic?
