Yet another day has gone by this NBA offseason, and yet another day we are talking about possible Ben Simmons trades! At some point, the Philadelphia 76ers will pull the trigger on a deal, and this could happen at any moment. It could even happen right now as you are reading this!
Ben Simmons’ time in Philadelphia looks like it is coming to an end, especially now that there are reports of him not communicating with the team and his teammates all offseason long.
Simmons has cut his communication with basically everyone within the 76ers organization and even communicated his desire to be traded in an August meeting. It has been reported he intends to never play for the 76ers again. This has been later reported in NBA trade rumors by other members of the media as well.
Seeing as they have been trying to trade him since they lost to the Atlanta Hawks in the playoffs, I can see why Ben Simmons would be angry with the 76ers, but this is not a good look for either side.
This whole Ben Simmons saga has been drawn out way too long now, and it seems very likely that he will be on the move at some point during the 2021-22 season, if not before then!
The Philadelphia 76ers continue to field calls for Simmons every day and have been offering him to teams, so let’s take a look at three deals that would make complete sense for the 76ers if they were to trade Ben Simmons tomorrow.
