Sixers’ rotation is uneven with Ben Simmons sitting out

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ The Sixers need to swing a trade. The Ben Simmons-less Sixers got their season started with a bang in a 20-point win down in New Orleans. Joel Embiid played well and was able to rest the majority of the fourth quarter. The team’s Night Shift bench crew balled out. Tyrese Maxey stepped into a legitimate starting role and casually dropped a 20-7-5 stat line. The Sixers’ rotation still has a hole sucking up $33 million. I’ve made it abundantly clear that the Sixers need to trade away Simmons. Removing that toxicity from the franchise and...

There is an unmistakably different vibe to Joel Embiid this year. Sure, there was one last season when he finished second in MVP voting and led the Sixers to the East’s top seed. But going into this season, it’s different.
