According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the Sixers are officially open for business regarding a potential Simmons trade.
While Simmons’ struggles weren’t the sole reason the Sixers lost to the Atlanta Hawks in seven games last month, his offensive limitations surely didn’t do them any favors. “The guy is an All-Star caliber player. He will never be the greatest shooter, but he does a whole lot for the team and I would not give up on him yet.”
According to Shams Charania, the Sixers want at least an All-Star caliber player in return for Simmons if they trade him. While Simmons has a high ceiling, the All-Star has proven to be unwilling to expand his game outside of the practice facility since making his Sixers debut a few years ago.
