Since it has been rumored that the Philadelphia 76ers are taking Ben Simmons with the first overall pick, they are no longer on the clock. But if the 76ers want to make a draft day trade, they must hurry, because the clock is ticking. As many of the NBA trade rumors are becoming realities, the 76ers are somewhat stuck waiting to see what will happen as the NBA Draft draws closer.
By taking Ben Simmons, the Philadelphia 76ers will have a glut of forwards and centers. Joel Embiid and Dario Saric have yet to play a game in the NBA, but the Sixers will not trade them. Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor, on the other hand, can be had via trade.
