Daryl Morey: 'We need better players and we'll make that happen'


Philadelphia 76ers president Daryl Morey addressed the media on Tuesday, less than 48 hours after the Sixers incredibly disappointing Game 7 loss to the Atlanta Hawks in the semi-finals.

The number one topic is 24-year-old Ben Simmons and if the Sixers plan to move forward with him, or if they want to trade him.

"I would say we have an extremely good trio," Morey said, referencing Simmons, Joel Embiid, and Tobias Harris. "You don't get the one seed without having an extremely good top trio. We're going to figure out how to make the team better. We gave ourselves a very good chance this year. Our chances to win the title peaked pretty high this year, and obviously it's a grave disappoint that we're here and we have to take the next step.
