The Sixers figure to be one of the more active teams during this crazy NBA summer as they have a boatload of picks in next month’s draft and there are a ton of moving parts in free agency.

There is growing concern in Philadelphia that Jimmy Butler could wind up signing with the Lakers come July 1, but the Sixers might be able to at least get something in return. Essentially, Elton Brand could facilitate a pick swap with Rob Pelinka that would give the Sixers the No. 4 pick overall and the Lakers the No. 24 overall pick. Los Angeles would receive Butler in a sign-and-trade.

The Sixers and Lakers make a ton of sense when it comes to being trade partners this summer, which is why those Ben Simmons for LeBron rumors likely crept up last week. The trade scenario above is a lot more likely than anything involving Simmons, as Brand would like to run back the Embiid-Simmons combo again. That combo was able to take the Raptors to seven games, and right now it looks like Toronto is a legitimate threat to at least give the Warriors a run for their money in the Finals. In other words, an Embiid-Simmons combo is not that far away from true contention.

As for who the Sixers would take with the No. 4 pick, North Carolina freshman point guard Coby White seems like a fabulous fit. The Tar Heels point guard is a combo guard and gifted scorer that has earned comparisons to Gilbert Arenas.

At the very top of the draft, all signs point to David Griffin and the Pelicans taking Zion Williamson No. 1 overall. A trade here doesn’t seem as likely anymore, as New Orleans will at least see if the Zion – Anthony Davis combo can work. A Davis trade is much more likely at the trade deadline if he is still frustrated with his situation in the Big Easy.

The Bulls are another team to watch as we get closer to the draft. Chicago was highly disappointed that it didn’t at least get into the top three of the draft and the pressure is now on to make a significant move. Don’t be surprised if the Bulls make a significant trade and also take Vanderbilt point guard Darius Garland if he falls to them at No. 7.
