Article Summary:

Another day, another trade proposal involving Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons amid the drama surrounding him at the moment following his trade request and holdout declaration.

A new trade proposal from ESPN has Philadelphia moving Simmons to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Kevin Love, 2022 first-round pick, 2024 first-round pick, and 2026 first-round pick. Cleveland risks giving up multiple high picks if Simmons doesn’t lead the team back to the playoffs, while Philadelphia could be parting with Simmons for only middling picks and have to pay Love the remaining $60 million and change on his contract. If the 76ers are convinced Simmons isn’t bluffing about never playing for the team again, a trade like this would be the best way to spin his value forward until a star becomes available.
