NBA Trade Rumors: 5 trades to watch out for-
#1- Ben Simmons to Chicago Bulls
After losing to the Boston Celtics 4-0 in the first round of the NBA playoffs, the Philadelphia 76ers decided to part ways with head coach Brett Brown. According to multiple trade rumors, there is a high possibility that the 76ers will be looking to trade guard/forward Ben Simmons.
Simmons and Embiid are one of the most dynamic duos in the league but their playing style doesn't work well for the team. If Ben Simmons is on the trade block, the Chicago Bulls will offer a trade package for the mercurial youngster with no hesitation. The Bulls have multiple young players that can be part of a trade package for Ben Simmons.
#2- Chris Paul to Milwaukee Bucks
Chris Paul and the OKC Thunder lost to the Houston Rockets 4-3 in the first round of the NBA playoffs. Paul was instrumental in extending the series to a game seven. According to multiple NBA trade rumors, Paul has already said goodbye to the Thunder and will be looking for a new challenge next season.
If the NBA trade rumors are to be believed, the most likely destination for the veteran point guard would be Milwaukee Bucks, who desperately need a ball-handler who can take over the game in the closing minutes. Trading for Chris Paul would be a statement signing which might help keep Giannis Antetokounmpo for the long term and also give the Bucks a chance at winning the NBA championship.
