Article Summary:

The Philadelphia 76ers are moving forward into the offseason looking to find ways to upgrade their roster following another disappointing playoff finish in 2021. There have been loud trade rumors for star Ben Simmons who struggled mightily on offense in the postseason.

According to a report by Jason Quick of The Athletic, the Sixers are unlikely to move Simmons for McCollum even if the package included a younger player like Nassir Little:

McCollum likely isn’t enticing enough to pry Ben Simmons from Philadelphia, even though their salaries virtually match. Philadelphia wants an All-Star in return for Simmons and while McCollum is a talented player and he is a guy who provides a skill that they need, he is not going to be enough for Philadelphia to move a young and talented All-Star like Simmons.
