As Sixers point guard Ben Simmons once again proved his shortcomings to be a problem in the postseason, many believe it’s time for the Sixers to consider moving on from Simmons.
A recent report also indicated the 76ers received an offer from the Indiana Pacers for Simmons, which Philly’s front office rejected.
Terry Pluto of Cleveland.com recently reported that several league sources believe that a potential package involving the veteran forward Kevin Love, the young guard Collin Sexton and draft picks would have “Little appeal” to Daryl Morey. Per Pluto’s report, insiders believe Morey wants “Someone such as Damian Lillard in a Simmons deal.”
While Philly would definitely have to add more in a package centered around Simmons to land somebody of that caliber, it would be in their best interest to shoot for the stars this offseason, not settle on something smaller just to make a trade for change.
