Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons has been in a lot of hot water lately after an abysmal performance in the second-round playoff series loss against the Atlanta Hawks.
Simmons left the floor at Wells Fargo Center to some chants of “Trade Ben Simmons” from Sixers fans. How heartbreaking that must have felt when looking back at all of the potential this team had in competing for a title.
With the 2021 NBA Draft approaching, the Sixers “continue to canvass the league” for a possible Simmons trade, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Ben Simmons’ agent, Rich Paul, who is also the CEO of Klutch Sports, is looking for a move that would benefit his client. The two are on the same page about it, but the Sixers are asking for a lot and could take talks past the draft.
