The Philadelphia 76ers were already taking trade calls on Ben Simmons as they were looking to add a win-now player to their roster.
Simmons is willing to go anywhere in the league as long as he is out of Philadelphia, and a few teams have the most interest in the 25-year-old three-time All-Star.
The Toronto Raptors maintained an interest in Simmons despite Philadelphia’s high asking price, and in a new trade suggestion put out by Bleacher Report, they acquire Simmons from the Sixers. In exchange, they give up Pascal Siakam, a 2022 first-round pick, a 2024 first-round pick, and a 2025 first-round pick swap.
Is the talent and age gap between 27-year-old Siakam and 25-year-old Simmons big enough to justify four picks? Probably not.
