Saying the 2019-20 season didn't go according to plan for the Philadelphia 76ers would be a major understatement.

Instead, the best they could muster was a first-round flameout at the hands of the Boston Celtics. A day later, the Sixers fired head coach Brett Brown.

Now with the Sixers expected to hire former Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey to run basketball operations, according to a report by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, and with former Clippers coach Doc Rivers on board, the questions turn to the roster. Should they keep Embiid and Simmons together?
