Dwight Howard couldn't have gone much further in his praise of Ben Simmons. By Noah Levick

76ers star Ben Simmons is one of the more talented players in the NBA right now. He can do so many different things on the basketball court such as play multiple positions, play great defense, he can finish, and he does it all at an elite level. At times, he gets compared to LeBron James who is one of the best players in NBA history. James has a similar skill set and he has a similar work ethic that makes the comparison viable. The team’s newest addition, Dwight Howard, played with James in the 2019-20 season and he has had plenty of battle with James in the past.

The Sixers made moves to build around their two young All-Stars

The 76ers are one of those teams and with new president Daryl Morey running the show, they are expected to make some type of move here soon. One big name that has popped up recently is Rockets star James Harden as it appears the Rockets are getting ready to blow things up and move forward with a retooling. Harden had a good relationship with Morey and ESPN’s Kendrick Perkins already mentioned that he has Philadelphia on his trade destination list. However, it does appear that the Sixers would have to give up one of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. Which makes total sense as a team has to give up value in order to get value.
