    Simmons is a head case that has not played up to his potential and I will concede there is a chance maybe he comes around but he has given no sign this could be the case. KingS I realize you might be a Net's fan but please remove your head from your BEEP and get a clue. I am pretty sure if you ask all the GM's in the league and give them truth serum they would say Simmons is one of the worst contracts and busts in the league atm and this is TRUTH.

    Almost all of this is incorrect and calling him a “head case” is offensive.

    The idea is Hero would net us a high quality player from a third team.

    but does Herro have the value to fetch a quality player?

    I thought the best case scenario for us is Herro yielding an unprotected FRP and expirings from a third team. The idea that a high quality player in the age range of what our roster should be doesn't seem to be realistic.

    If we traded Dame to New Jersey for Simmons and picks I think I'd be ok with that.

    Maybe this was just all for show so Ben Simmons can win Most Improve Player?

    To take Simmons back for Dame without picks coming back... there would have to be all sorts of crazy backstory as to what/why happened the past few years explaining his last couple disastrous years that management (& not I) are aware of. IF he is back to his full powers, his game would seem to fit really well with whats in place

    I see Ben Simmons is getting the Mike Barrett treatment.

    What is considered a “high quality player”? What I would like for Herro would be something along the lines of Simmons, one of their rookies, and a 2026 1st.

    I like Ant more than Herro, but most of the country would probably have Herro. There are many here who don’t think Ant is worth much, how realistic is acquiring a “high quality player” for Herro who at best is marginally better than Ant?

    They have to take back Herro and Duncan Robinson to make that work so it's likely just Simmons and Clowney or Simmons and the Suns 2025 FRP.

    If we got Jaquez, Jovic, Simmons, PHX 2025 FRP along with Miami's 2024, '28 and '30 FRPs I could deal with that and I would also be OK with Jaquez, Jovic, Simmons, Clowney and the Heat's 2024, '28 and '30 FRPs.

    I certainly would be fine with Jaquez, Jovic, Simmons, and the Heat 1sts. I would also ask for a pick swap in ‘27.

    Simmons and Jovic at least add more size at the PF.

    I think the Heat might go for Dame for Herro, Robinson, Jaquez, Jovic along with their 2024, '26 and '28 FRPs and a swap in 2027. I also think the Nets would go for Herro an Robinson for Simmons. I just don't know if that would be enough value coming back for Dame as far as Cronin is concerned given how Simmons has performed the last two seasons.

    Offensive should make him good, cos that is his main problem.

    Don't look at the players, look at the picks:

    It's pretty shitty, yes, but is it shittier than the Miami offer?
    Bridges and Brunson have been teammates at Villanova and for Team USA, so why not again?
