The Philadelphia 76ers are attempting to surround Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid with shooters after a series of trades on draft day.
Daryl Morey traded Al Horford to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Danny Green and then turned Josh Richardson into Seth Curry.
“When Joel and Ben have had that, it’s actually insane how good those lineups and how good those teams played,” Morey said. “That was the theme for tonight. Getting Seth, you can argue he’s the best shooter in the NBA.”
Morey said Simmons and Embiid “are going to be here for a long time.”
While there have been rumors of a potential trade of Simmons for James Harden, reports have indicated that Morey prefers to make a pairing of Simmons and Embiid work before considering a trade.
