Sixers fans say Ben Simmons is perfect for blazers after Chauncey Billups comment

In today NBA, three-point shooting is more important than ever. As players like Steph Curry, James Harden and many others have become deadly shooters beyond the arc, each team understands that they need to have multiple three-point shooters on their squad to keep up with the competition.

the Sixers have found ways to add long-range shooters to team up alongside their stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. Even though they built a strong supporting cast of shooters last season, their point guard’s reluctance to throw a threesome at an average pace for the position has often put them in a difficult position.

At this point, the Sixers are looking for a change in the point guard. As they want a natural player for the job, many are focusing on Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard as he could potentially be next. NBA superstar to trade.

As of yet, Lillard has yet to request a trade from the Blazers. But Sixers fans are waiting for that to happen now. And on Wednesday, as a quote from new Blazers head coach Chauncey Billups hit Twitter, Sixers fans proposed that they just have the right player for Billups because he doesn’t want his squad going up threes at a high rate. next season.

“I’m not one of those coaches who want to shoot all three and go up to 50 threes”, Billups said on Rip City Radio 620. “I do not believe it.”

As expected, Sixers fans had fun with the quote.

While Sixers fans seem eager to see a Simmons-centric trade package sent to Portland in exchange for Lillard, Philly and Portland don’t seem close to making a deal.

While there’s still plenty of time for that to change, it’s likely that Simmons will stay with the Sixers until the start of next season gets closer for now.
