Trade Rumors: Sixers, Bradley, Tucker, Bogut

The Sixers are seeking deals for defensive-oriented guards capable of playing alongside Ben Simmons, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical (via Twitter). According to Wojnarowski, Philadelphia has targeted Celtics guard Avery Bradley, but hasn’t gained any traction.

With Marcus Smart playing well lately and Jaylen Brown viewed as a potential star by the Celtics, Bradley could be somewhat expendable in Boston, but Philadelphia and Boston aren’t necessarily a great match in such a trade. Both teams are loaded with future draft picks, which is likely what the Sixers would offer for Bradley — the Celtics don’t really need any more picks, unless they think they could use them in a package for a star.

Here’s more from around the NBA with the trade deadline less than a half-hour away:

  • At least three teams – the Pelicans, Cavaliers, and Celtics – have opted against meeting the Suns‘ asking price of a first-round pick for P.J. Tucker, reports John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 (Twitter link).
  • The Sixers don’t expect to flip Andrew Bogut in another trade before the deadline, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein, who reports (via Twitter) that the two sides will immediately begin buyout discussions.
  • At this point, the Nuggets don’t expect to make any moves before the deadline, sources tell Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post (Twitter link).
  • The Pacers are still trying to fortify their roster, and remain in talks with the Kings about Arron Afflalo, tweets Sam Amick of USA Today.

    Flip Bradley for firsts use one on Tucker rest as part of a package for George.

  2. Wait……are the Sixers planning on playing Simmons at the 1 full time?

    • DannyQ3913

      That’s what coach says and he’s known him since he was 14

    • JacksonM_15

      He will run the point on offense, guard 4’s on defense (at least that’s what I think). They are probably looking a someone to play the 2 on offense see but then cover point guards on defense.

  3. Would rather just keep AB. No way he fetches 2 firsts and trading Bradley for a 1st then a 1st for tucker makes no sense. Stand pat. Get Bogut for free after the buyout and make a run with what we’ve got. We need to see what this full unit is capable of anyway. Last year we didn’t have AB. Crowder was on one leg and Kelly was having big time shoulder problems after he ripped Kevin Love’s arm off.
