Report: 76ers, Pistons talked bringing Jerami Grant back to Philly in Simmons trade

NBC Sports


Article Summary:

Ideally, the 76ers want James Harden in return as part of a Ben Simmons trade.

That Harden is the dream and one of the 30 or so players 76ers GM Daryl Morey would trade Simmons for was laid out by Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, but he also reported talks about a somewhat more realistic scenario: A trade with Detroit that brings Jerami Grant back to Philly.

Pompey then says some in the 76ers front office want to hold on to Simmons and wait for a sign-and-trade for Harden, who is a favorite of Morey’s from when both of them were in Houston together.

The reality remains it is highly unlikely any trade talks for Simmons get serious before Dec. 15 – when most players who signed this summer can be traded – and that the Simmons saga likely will drag into 2022, and maybe to the Feb. 10 trade deadline.
