Sixers Urged To Trade Tyrese Maxey For $176 Million Mvp Candidate

The Joel Embiid-era Philadelphia 76ers have struggled. After enough time, Bleacher Report's Zach Buckley revealed on September 12 how the Sixers can prevent Embiid from requesting a trade.

If the Sixers aren't committed to creating a championship roster around (Embiid), he may not be committed to them.

That's why Philly should try to sell its assets—even Tyrese Maxey—to win the Damian Lillard sweepstakes. 

Buckley stated that his pick-and-roll skills and postseason performance should make him a better fit with Embiid than James Harden.

According to Bleacher Report's Chris Haynes, the Portland Trail Blazers have not honored Lillard's July 1 trade request. 

With his scoring ability and age, Maxey would appeal to the Trail Blazers, but the Sixers must decide whether to surround Embiid with Lillard or start again with Maxey if Embiid leaves.
