Ben Simmons situation: trading for John Wall makes no sense, plus the team hopes Ben won’t holdout

Article Summary:

If Daryl Morey asked the Golden State Warriors for their three most recent first-round picks and two additional future 1st round picks, imagine what he’d need in order to part with Simmons and Matisse Thybulle while taking back one of the worst contracts in the league in Wall. The team would seem to prefer to head into the season with Simmons in the lineup, at least as long as players like Damian Lillard and Bradley Beal are not currently available via trade. Simmons has four years remaining on a max contract so he doesn’t have the leverage here, although his being willing to hold out through the NBA trade deadline would be a fairly wild power move, even for Klutch.

If you read reports that Rich Paul met with the Sixers’ Brass to discuss Simmons’ future back on June 24th and thought to yourself “Simmons wants out, but the Sixers probably don’t want to sell at such a low point in his trade value, at least unless they could land someone like Dame” well you can continue on with your prior vantage point.
