NBA Rumors: Spurs' Kawhi Leonard unhappy? Should Sixers pursue in offseason? | 7 reasons because it could happen

So because do a Sixers make sense?

Well, they can put together a sincerely interesting package in any trade.

Following a lottery, a Sixers can trade a 2018 Lakers first-rounder it owns, as prolonged as it doesn’t tumble between 2-5, in that box it would go to a Celtics. If that occurs, afterwards a Sixers would be means to trade a Kings 2019 first-rounder, in further to a Sixers’ possess 2018 or 2019 firsts.

In terms of players, a Sixers have a few interesting immature and affordable options that would be of seductiveness to a Spurs, incompatible Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, who will not be traded. (Not observant they’d trade all of these players, only that they’re options.)

1. Dario Saric, a young, affordable, gifted 4 who has a celebrity to play for Pop. 

2. Robert Covington, a immature 3-and-D wing on an affordable understanding (about $10M per season) 

3. Markelle Fultz, a No. 1 collect with chosen intensity and shooting issues. The Spurs have presumably a best sharpened manager (Chip Engelland) in a world. 

4. Jonah Bolden/Anzejs Pasecniks: Two gifted internationally stashed Sixers breeze picks

5. T.J. McConnell: Nobody wants a Sixers to trade him. But nobody would adore him some-more than Popovich would. 

6. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot: A immature actor with sharpened intensity on a inexpensive deal. He’s also from France and Tony Parker knows him well.

Of course, other teams MIGHT have some-more interesting packages to offer, including a Lakers (Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, 2019 first), Warriors (Klay Thompson, also a 2019 giveaway agent) and Celtics (Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, whichever 1st they get via Sixers from Fultz trade), yet I’m not so certain a Spurs would wish to trade with dual other Western Conference contenders.
