Should the 22-year-old become available, Philadelphia has the pieces to make a move – with or without Ben Simmons. Would OKC truly consider trading him, and how much should Philadelphia hypothetically offer?
All the trade talk leads into yet another Ben Simmons talking point: Doc Rivers’ lack of public accountability for the All-Star point guard. In a recent TMZ “Interview,” Rivers said he wants Simmons back next season, and voiced his confidence in the Aussie.
All season, Rivers has been nothing but complementary of Simmons’ current skill set, and has pushed back against the suggestion that his game needs to expand dramatically.
