The Ben Simmons situation continues to escalate on a daily basis. The former first overall pick wants out of the City of Brotherly Love and they continue to look for a trade partner.

Nonetheless, there isn't much interest in trading away multiple assets for a wantaway player. Daryl Morey doesn't want to take a penny on the dollar, so he's being inflexible with his demands for Simmons.

That's why the Minnesota Timberwolves are the only team in a position to make a run at Simmons, as they're pretty high on him and would be willing to move some pieces to get the job done, as per NBA insider Jon Krawczynski:

"Jon Krawczynski: I believe the Timberwolves are the team in the league right now that most want Ben Simmons. I think that the Ben Simmons market across the league is pretty dry," reported HoopsHype.
