Nets won this trade by a mile. If the sixers think dealing with Simmons was hard, wait till Harden throws his toys out of the cot.
Nets get KD and Irving back in that line up full time, they will be an absolute force and the best thing about this trade is they wont even need Simmons to put up big shooting numbers as there is plenty of scorers on that team already.
How do you figure? Harden carried Houston for years without a peep and he wanted out of Brooklyn because Kyrie is a freakshow that won't be able to contribute. This idea that Harden is a diva is blown wayyyy outta proportion.

Plus, he's back with Morey. I think Embiid and Harden are going to be great.

I feel for KD having to play with three real divas in Simmons, Griffin and Irving.

Lets look at the some of the facts
1. Demanded out of the thunder because he didn't want to play second fiddle to Westbrook and Durant after their finals loss to Miami. Was offered a very good contract to return but chose to flee to be the main alpha of the team via a trade when he rejected the contract.
2. After realising he wasn't getting a ring from the Rockets, demanded a trade to form a new super team with KD & Kyrie - didn't turn up to pre season at Houston, once he turned up at the Rockets was overweight and not very helpful to force the trade.
3. Once things weren't going his way at the nets, again demanded a trade to a preferred contender team to get his wishes.

This is 3 instances of him forcing his way off teams mid contract.

Fact is, he isn't getting any younger, he isnt the same player he was when Morey was at the Rockets with him, and the assets they gave away have made one of their rivals so much stronger than what he has made the sixers. Sure, the sixers were getting zero output from Simmons, but trading Curry and Drummond plus two first rounders really strengthens the Nets more than it does the sixers. The Nets now have a much better defence cause lets face it, Harden plays **** all D at the best of times whereas Simmons can guard 1 to 5 with ease at an elite level, another big to help them out at the centre position where they are weak, have a sharp shooter in Curry on the wings, and Simmons has absolutely no pressure to score cause KD and Kyrie do that for you.

Kyrie gets the all clear to return for home games and Simmons gets on the court and all of a sudden teams dont really want to face them in the post season

Alright it is NBA Play-In time - Nets v Cavs. As expected, no Simmons. What a waste of money he seems to have been for the Nets.
