Simmons Trade Appears Unlikely, but Sixers Continue to Eye Damian Lillard

The Philadelphia 76ers are expected to hold onto Ben Simmons with training camp quickly approaching.

Following a disappointing playoff exit, numerous reports suggested that Simmons’ time with the Sixers has come to an end and while Philadelphia is by no means married to the idea of keeping the young All-Star, no legitimate trade scenario has materialized to this point.

Despite receiving interest from numerous teams, the Sixers have allegedly sought for a “James Harden-like” return for Simmons.

Earlier in the week, the Sixers extended Joel Embiid to a four-year, $196 million extension and continue to monitor Damian Lillard’s situation in Portland. If the superstar guard is to become available in trade, the Sixers would more than likely look to move Simmons in order to acquire the 31-year old Lillard.

The Minnesota Timberwolves, Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings, Toronto Raptors and San Antonio Spurs have all expressed interest in Simmons, but Daryl Morey and his front office have not appeared eager to rush any sort of trade.

So unless something drastic is to occur, Simmons will begin the upcoming season with the Sixers.
