Daryl Morey says Ben Simmons requested trade: ‘We were not looking to trade him’

Article Summary:

The 76ers are stuck between trading Ben Simmons for an offer they deem unsatisfactory and managing his holdout.

Philadelphia wasn’t looking to trade Simmons then for the same reason he hasn’t been traded yet now: It’s not the right timing to maximize the return.

The 76ers, after saying they wouldn’t trade him, tried to trade Simmons for James Harden last season.

I believe Simmons’ agent, Rich Paul, requested a trade at that Chicago meeting.
