Article Summary:

The Ben Simmons trade rumors just got dialed up to 11 after the three-time All-Star reportedly requested a trade from the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday.

Although Simmons wants out, there hasn’t been any trades that have materialized yet. With everything that’s been reported about Simmons, a supposed rift between him and Embiid hasn’t been played up as much as Simmons taking issue with a comment head coach Doc Rivers made following Game 7 against the Hawks.

When asked if Simmons was qualified to be a championship-level point guard, Rivers said, “I don’t know the answer to that right now.” Couple that with being made the scapegoat for the Sixers’ failure in the postseason, and the trade rumors that were floating around dating back to when James Harden was on the trade table, and you can see why Simmons would want out of Philadelphia.
