Spurs Asked For Embiid Or Simmons For Leonard

Before the Spurs agreed on a Kawhi Leonard trade package focused around DeMar DeRozan, they were asking for much bigger names from the Sixers, according to ESPNís Zach Lowe. (Hat tip to Dale Delgado of NBC Sports).

In his latest Lowe Post podcast, Lowe says Philadelphia turned down San Antonio offers that would have included Joel Embiid or Ben Simmons. The Sixers were reluctant to part with stars in exchange for a player who isnít guaranteed to stay beyond this season, and Embiid and Simmons are probably untouchable in any circumstances.

Another name that popped up in rumors was Markelle Fultz, whose rookie season was cut short by a combination of injuries and problems with his shooting form. However, Lowe says the Spurs were never interested in the top pick in the 2017 draft.

ďThere is no evidence that the Spurs wanted Fultz,Ē Lowe said. ďIíve been told the Spurs never asked for Fultz, and actively didnít want Fultz, and in fact wanted one of the two big guys.Ē

Sixers guard J.J. Redick, who was a guest on Loweís podcast, defended Fultz and claimed he was poorly treated by the media last season.

I don't blame the Sixers turning down such an offer when the Spurs couldn't guarantee that Leonard would be around a while or even resign. Also, the Sixers and their fans have waited, either one or two years, for Simmons and Embiid to mend from their injuries. Now that they got them back in uniform, I didn't see the Sixer management trading one of them without seeing what they really could do together.
