NBA Rumors: Rockets Could Acquire Joel Embiid & Tobias Harris For Westbrook, Gordon & Covington

Joel Embiid #21 and Tobias Harris #33 of the Philadelphia 76ers react against the Brooklyn Nets in the second quarter of Game Five of Round One of the 2019 NBA Playoffs at the Wells Fargo Center on April 23, 2019 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

After failing to achieve their main goal in the 2019-20 NBA season, the Houston Rockets are expected to make a huge roster overhaul this fall. To have a better chance of fully dominating the Western Conference and winning the NBA championship title, there are rumors that the Rockets are planning to make everyone on their roster, except James Harden, available in trade discussions in the 2020 offseason. One of the dream trade targets for the Rockets is All-Star center Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers.

According to Mark Camarena of Fansided’s Space City Scoop, the Rockets could send a trade package that includes Russell Westbrook, Eric Gordon, and Robert Covington to the Sixers in exchange for Embiid and Tobias Harris. The deal works on ESPN‘s NBA Trade Machine. Though it’s hard to imagine them parting ways with Embiid this offseason, Camarena believes that the proposed scenario would also be beneficial for the Sixers.
