Will Ben Simmons leave the city of Philadelphia and take his talents elsewhere?
Recently, Bally Sport Network’s analyst Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson reported that the 76ers and the Golden State Warriors re-engaged in discussions to make a deal with Simmons happen.
KRON4 News’ Jason Dumas noted that the Aussie point guard has “cut off communication with basically everyone in the Sixers organization” and shared that Simmons’ agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports is mediating the situation.
The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Keith Pompey noted that Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey proposed a hefty offer for Simmons that included first-round picks, as well as Andrew Wiggins and James Wiseman — which the Warriors found laughable.
Many have criticized Simmons’ ability to shoot the three-pointer efficiently.
Apparently he’s making changes.
Scoop B noted today that Simmons, the 76ers’ first-round pick in the 2016 NBA Draft has been working out in LA with Clippers players Rajon Rondo and teammate Brandon Boston Jr.
Will the 76ers actually trade Simmons? Some experts and Vegas oddsmakers have noted teams like the Toronto Raptors, Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings as trade suitors.
Betters in Pennsylvania are getting into the action in determining Simmons’ next spot.
