Recently, a hypothetical deal involving the Golden State Warriors and the Philadelphia 76ers picked up some steam.

As the Warriors look to potentially deal one of their offseason acquisitions, D’Angelo Russell, a few writers are putting together potential packages the Warriors could come up with.

TrueHoop’s David Thorpe had an interesting scenario where the Warriors call up the 76ers and offer a package including Russell in exchange for one of Philly’s most prominent stars, Ben Simmons.

Also according to Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic, the Warriors could be looking at a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers that includes Ben Simmons.

With this in mind, Simmons and Russell could be the perfect trade partners.
