The Philadelphia 76ers continue to discuss trade offers revolving around NBA All-Star Ben Simmons every day. Still, with training camp right around the corner, the 76ers are running out of time to decide on Simmons’ future.

There seem to be a handful of teams interested in Simmons right now, and according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, there are “four to five” teams all making offers for him every single day, including one unnamed team having “a lot of interest” in Simmons. 

This should not be a total surprise like the Minnesota Timberwolves, Portland Trail Blazers, Sacramento Kings, Spurs, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Toronto Raptors have all been mentioned as possible landing spots for Ben Simmons over the last few weeks. Still, it is a little surprising to see that the 76ers have not progressed on trade talks at all. 

Getting an All-Star in return for Simmons has always been the mentality of the 76ers’ front-office, but at this point, they probably are not going to receive this kind of value.
