Now that it’s all over, here are seven Sixers takes and takeaways from the Finals. The Sixers should’ve traded Ben Simmons for Kawhi Leonard Back when the San Antonio Spurs were shopping Kawhi Leonard, it was rumored the Sixers would have to give up one of Ben Simmons or Joel Embiid to land the disgruntled superstar wing.

Philadelphia 76ers 2019 NBA Draft profile: Jaxson Hayes

The Philadelphia 76ers need depth behind Joel Embiid, but Jaxson Hayes is wishful thinking. Much has been said about the Philadelphia 76ers‘ depth in recent months.
