Trail Blazers turned down Sixers trade proposal asking for three first-round picks for Ben Simmons, per report

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

While Simmons continues to wait out the Sixers while the franchise tries to either convince him to re-join the team or find a trade for him, there hasn’t been much progress on the trade front. The Sixers reportedly asked the Portland Trail Blazers for three first-round picks and three pick swaps in a package that would send guard CJ McCollum to Philly in exchange for Simmons, but Portland turned that proposal down, per Charania.

It’s not surprising that the Trail Blazers turned that offer down, as the Sixers asking price for Simmons hasn’t been met by any team in the league.

Other teams like the Indiana Pacers, who have been linked to Simmons, reportedly don’t have the high-level talent the Sixers are looking for, per Marc Stein, as they’ve been offering Malcolm Brogdon and Caris LeVert in exchange for Simmons.
