76ers trade for NBA champion wing in this proposed bargain bin deal

In this trade proposal recently dished out by Bleacher Report, the Philadelphia 76ers received veteran wing Bruce Brown from the Toronto Raptors for a package consisting of wing Furkan Korkmaz and KJ Martin, veteran forward Marcus Morris Sr., and two future second-round picks.

Brown, who won a championship last season as the Denver Nuggets’ sixth man, signed a big deal in the offseason with the Indiana Pacers, where he started in all of his appearances. While he’s been a positive addition to Indiana polis, he was eventually traded to the Toronto Raptors as the main salary matcher in the Pascal Siakam deal.

On the flip side, Korkmaz and Martin have been stuck in Nick Nurse’s doghouse, largely tethered to garbage time duty. Both are on expiring deals, making them easy throw-ins to make the money work. Meanwhile, Morris has been a key bench piece in recent weeks, but is ultimately expendable given the team’s depth in the forward position.

Will this trade play into the 76ers’ liking enough for them to pursue Brown? Let’s zoom in on the pros and cons of this pitched swap.
