Sixers President of Basketball operations Daryl Morey joined the Mike Missanelli show Thursday and he didn’t hold back. Discussing the Ben Simmons topic, Morey said this thing could play out for as long as it takes to get the best deal possible.
“You’re going to think I’m kidding but I’m not,” Morey told Mike Missanelli. “This could be 4 years. We’re in the prime of Joel (Embiid’s) career. Either Ben Simmons will play well for us and help us win a championship, or we have to get back a difference maker for Ben Simmons. Or this could be 4 years from now and we say ‘hey we took the best shot that we could.”
Ben Simmons was KICKED OUT OF PRACTICE on Tuesday but Morey sounds like the Sixers would welcome him back.
“Everyday were going to expect Ben Simmons back here, or were going to trade him for a difference maker. There is no other outcome that doesn’t truly hurt our chances to win a championship in Joel Embiid’s prime”
The entire interview is incredible. Morey was candid and honest. Check out Mikes full interview with Daryl Morey below
