Ben Simmons Increasingly Unlikely to Return to Philadelphia 76ers Next Season

It appears increasingly likely that Ben Simmons’ time in Philadelphia is coming up.

According to multiple sources from across the league, a trade of Simmons by the Philadelphia 76ers is considered to be “inevitable” and while it can drag out for a few months, there is an expectation that Simmons will not play another regular season game with the Sixers.

The Sixers have lofty demands in the early going as the Simmons market just begins to materialize. Per sources close to the team, the Sixers are looking for a package that includes a point guard to act as Simmons’ replacement, draft pick compensation and NBA ready players. The trade requests are so steep that Bleacher Report suggested that the Sixers have allegedly asked the Toronto Raptors for Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby and draft picks in return for Simmons.

Don’t worry Raptors fans, the Raptors brass said no.

Teams believe the Sixers will operate with more urgency closer to the season. Nevertheless, despite his most recent playoff struggles, the 25-year old Simmons is still an All-Star level player and a yearly All-Defense Team member. He is also controllable through the 2024-25 season, but is slated to make $40.3-million in his final season.

The Sixers are hoping to land one of Damian Lillard, Bradley Beal, or Kyle Lowry in any Simmons deal.
