The Philadelphia 76ers remain one of the biggest storylines in the NBA because of their ongoing saga with Ben Simmons. The point guard has yet to be traded but it is clear that he will have to be at some point moving forward. It would benefit the Sixers to get this deal done as soon as possible.

Simmons cut off communication with Philadelphia and expressed that he will not be reporting to practice. It is clear that he has played his last game in a Sixers uniform so it will be interesting to see where the front office decides to move him.

Moving on from Simmons will be a benefit for the Sixers as well as they can look to add a point guard who can score the ball. Joel Embiid signed a contract extension this offseason which means the Sixers can officially build around him.

Choosing an identity hasn’t been clear and has been delayed because the front office was worried about both Simmons and Embiid. After putting up an MVP-caliber season, it is clear that the big man is the piece to hold onto.
