Each of the teams mentioned above learned one thing; Ben Simmons is not going to come cheap. According to Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Warriors engaged in trade talks with the Sixers to check on the availability of Simmons.
“The Sixers asked for Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman, the Nos. 7 and 14 picks in tonight’s NBA draft along with two future first-rounders in exchange for Ben Simmons,” Pompey wrote in his latest piece. “The Warriors quickly turned down the offer.”
As teams have low-balled the Sixers since the start of the offseason, Philly is firing back with sky-high price demands making it clear that they aren’t willing to part ways with Simmons for the sake of doing so.
