After a disappointing playoff run by Ben Simmons and the Philadephia 76ers, the young star has constantly seen his name swirling in NBA trade rumors this offseason.
Multiple teams have been rumored to be interested in Ben Simmons, with the Miami Heat, Toronto Raptors, and Washington Wizards currently viewed as the most likely landing spots.
Via The Athletic’s Sam Amick:
Yet while Portland’s Damian Lillard and Washington’s Bradley Beal both appear to be in their respective holding patterns when it comes to possibly requesting a trade, it’s looking increasingly likely that Philadelphia’s Ben Simmons will be on the move. One source close to the situation handicapped Miami, Toronto and Washington as the most likely landing spots. The Wizards scenario, of course, would only take place if Beal wound up deciding that it was time for a new chapter outside of the nation’s capital. The moving parts, as you can see, are sometimes part of the same puzzle.
