    The difference is AD doesn’t even wanna be a Center, he wants to be a PF

      Embiid runs circles around AD every matchup

        Ryan Haskins go watch the last 3 matchups. AD gets sonned each time.

              You trade Embiid because your team doesnt work. Running the offense through Jimmy and Simmons seems to work. AD would complement that squad....Max and Jay are right.

                Davis is a little better than embiid but its un honestly would be a pointless trade.

                  I would do AD for Embiid not just because of injury factor, but because AD fits better with Simmons.

                          Umm AD is better than Embiid.
                          Phil’s is playing in the east and are underperforming. Pelicans supporting cast might not be bums, but they’re definitely not Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler.
                          People need to remember that the Pelicans are one of the worst run franchises in NBA history and he still made noise last year in the playoffs. Therefore people need to stop questioning his desire to win

                              If AD is for a long term, no brainer considering Joel's injury history.

                                  Ad can play both the 4 and the 5 and can basically guard all positions and he can move without the ball and has guardlike handles idk i think I'd rather have ad on my team I don't need my big man to be ball dominant I got guards for that embiid is big time tho can easily be the best big man in the league if he can remain healthy and continue to ball out the way he is

                                            Bron should have tried to get Jo. That would have made teams double up on Jo freeing up Bron. Lakers also need Damien Lillard. Can score and play defense.

                                              Jo always been great. At Kansas before an injury Fred hoiberg said he was the best player he had seen play in college. If Jo had not got hurt at Kansas they would have a national championship. Jo showing out in the NBA. 76ers need a few more pieces and they could be contenders.

                                                might be one of the better questions i've heard in awhile for hypothetical player value. not so much practical trade sense

                                                    AD only made it to the playoffs once. Rando left and it over to have the nerve to say the Sixers will better with him

                                                                    • Chris Vidal

                                                                      • home9dog2blue

Think about it. I think they're virtually the SAME PLAYER. Athleticism isnt exactly the X-factor when they BOTH are injury prone

                                                                                            One the few times I completely agree with Stephen A. Smith on all of his points here. Philly is a huge market with a great, rabid(sometimes over the top fanbase)which it's really easy to market Embiid.

                                                                                            I would also keep Embiid for his size, speed, post and shooting skills.
