Ben Simmons trade offers not close to what Sixers are looking for


b1cfe0e02ea2eef4c0a8cd6afd4f4068

Chris Mannix: The Sixers have made it abundantly clear that they aren’t dealing Ben Simmons anytime soon. They have spoken to teams about Ben Simmons. I’m told none of the offers for Simmons said have been even close to what they were looking for

I obviously hope this ends with Kyrie Irving getting vaccinated. That’s the ideal outcome here.
But holy shit am I having fun imagining a playoff series in which Joel Embiid and Kyrie Irving play against Kevin Durant, James Harden and Ben Simmons. – 1:03 PM

The circumstances were different, but Doc Rivers, who held out from the #Clippers in 1991, knows what it’s like to rejoin a team after taking a stand.

Final ESPN story on Ben Simmons’ surprise return to the 76ers on Monday night: es.pn/3mDxS60 – 2:23 AM

More on this storyline

One thing is for sure — at least for now. While an Irving trade for Ben Simmons with Philadelphia is seen by some as an easy solution to both teams’ problems, sources with knowledge of the 76ers’ view said there is no interest in Irving at the moment. From management on down, it seems there is an unsurprising level of skepticism about that pairing working out any better than the Joel Embiid-Simmons duo that is zombified at the moment. -via The Athletic / October 13, 2021

Now to be clear, Simmons’ camp has not scratched Brooklyn off its list of potential get-out-of-Philadelphia scenarios. They still see it as a possibility — however remote. As we chronicled in a recent roundtable, it’s still widely believed that Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey is holding out for either Portland’s Damian Lillard or Washington’s Bradley Beal (I would posit, by the way, that Lillard is all by himself when it comes to the Sixers’ dream targets). -via The Athletic / October 13, 2021

Darren Wolfson: Gupta has officially reached out to Philadelphia. Philadelphia is well aware of Gupta’s interest, but the same hurdles remain. But make no mistake about this: the sense is there’s not a team in the NBA that wants Ben Simmons more than the Wolves. -via Spotify / October 13, 2021
