The question for Sixers' management (and fans) is what kind of trade you can make to substantially increase the odds of a conference championship or NBA championship. If you could shuffle money and get your rotation to look like this:
With Harris, Morris, (possibly Springer and Martin) and picks and swaps going out...
I think you would of course do it, and it's probably feasible. The largest incentive to make trades that would end up something like the above is not wasting a year of prime Embiid. I don't think this incentive should be underestimated. We are not going to wait until the off-season because the team as is, even though it's good, is not going to win a championship without immense good luck. Maybe 5% chance to win the East....The above lineup might be as high as 30%+ to win the East. You owe it to Joel to try, and you owe it to your fans and the rest of the team. You don't throw away chances. The life of a basketball player is finite.
(I would prefer Dorian Finney-Smith to LaVine, and start the following lineup
but I'm not all that high on LaVine; others are.)
