If Mike D'Antoni is hired in Philly, a blockbuster trade is next!

The Philadelphia 76ers are reportedly trying to lock down Mike D'Antoni as their newest head coach and if they do so, the team will be putting up the 'for sale' sign.

Because of the style of play Mike D'Antoni likes to play, it's likely the team explores trading Ben Simmons, who even though loves to play in transition, he's not a good shooter, and D'Antoni's offense is all about shooting the basketball. Simmons 29% from three just isn't going to cut it. 

There's a very small chance the team has interest in moving big man Joel Embiid, so even though he's been linked to the Golden State Warriors, it's not likely he's moved. Al Horford on the other hand could be had for the right price. The big isn't the ideal stretch four for D'Antoni's system so expect to hear Horford's name mentioned.

Things are getting awfully interesting in the city of brotherly love.
