Article Summary:

The Philadelphia 76ers tried trading Ben Simmons before: He was involved heavily in the James Harden sweepstakes with the Houston Rockets. He was ultimately traded to the Brooklyn Nets, but the Sixers also had their eyes on another explosive perimeter scorer on the Nets, Kyrie Irving.
