ESPN’s Bobby Marks notes the trade cannot happen until the Lakers’ reported trade with the Thunder is completed, or it could become a three-team trade.

    Starting in 2020-21, Horford has $27.5M, $27M and $26.5M left on his contract.

    The last year has $14.5M in guaranteed money.

    Green is on an expiring $15.4M contract

    Trade cannot happen until the LAL deal with Dennis Schroder is completed or this could become a 3 way deal.—

The 33-year-old Green is under contract for one more season. He’s a three-time NBA champion, a 40 percent career shooter from three-point range and, the Sixers will hope, able to help in an area where they need it. The team was 22nd in three-point attempts last year. The 22-year-old Ferguson is a defensively oriented wing who’s averaged 4.8 points and 1.4 rebounds over three NBA seasons. He’ll be on the final year of his rookie contract.

Dealing away Horford was evidently a priority for new Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey. The pairing with Horford and Joel Embiid was a season-long problem for the Sixers as the team sported a minus-0.5 net rating in the regular season when the two shared the floor.

With Horford exiting, finding a backup center will presumably be an offseason priority. Norvel Pelle is currently the team’s primary backup big man under contract.
