Yes receiving a guard for the future from a Noel trade is what most fans want. I am not going to lie, if the trade can produce a guard that can both score and rebound that would be great. That will probably not happen for the team that only averages 92.8 points per game, which marks the lowest in the league.
Ben Simmons is the point guard of the future so the need for the Sixers to get another point guard is unnecessary. Especially with the play of Sergio Rodriguez and yet to play Jerryd Bayless on the roster. Gerald Henderson is a good for the team and can play either wing position. He can also guard point guards through small forwards so team just needs one more wing player. Preferably one that will not be turnover prone. The Sixers rank 23rd in the league averaging 16 turnovers a game. Finding a wing with handles will correct this dramatically.
Trading Noel could get the Sixers exactly what they need to help salvage this season. Getting a well rounded wing player is what the Sixers need. This may not be a popular option, but when reviewing the stats it is what the Sixers need. The stats do not lie.
