Philadelphia 76ers: Steep asking price has Ben Simmons saga far from over

Article Summary:

However, the one deal NBA fans have been looking forward to, since the end of the playoffs, was noticeably missing; the Philadelphia 76ers moving Ben Simmons.

With all of the reports coming from within the organization that Simmons has basically ghosted the franchise and hasn’t been in touch all summer, along with swirling rumors that the franchise is ready to move on from the experimental pairing of Simmons and Joel Embiid, the draft night seemed like the perfect time to make a deal happen. He’s being valued on performance, and the last time we saw Simmons play he was nonexistent on the offensive end when his team needed him most, a trend that has had Philly fans pulling their hair out for the majority of Simmons’ tenure with the franchise.

Even though Simmons had a rough end to the season, I personally believe that in the right situation, he can be one of the best players in the NBA, even without the shooting ability everyone else thinks he needs desperately.
