Article Summary:

In the latest Ben Simmons update from The Athletic’s Sam Amick, we’ve received one particularly interesting nugget of information regarding the number of players the Sixers would be happy to receive in a Simmons trade.

After mentioning obvious stars we’ve already been talking about for months such as Damian Lillard, James Harden and Bradley Beal, Amick reported that there’s a list of approximately 30 players who would be satisfactory returns for the Sixers in a deal:

But here’s the part that may come as a surprise: A source with knowledge of the list said there are approximately 30 players who would satisfy the Sixers in a Simmons swap, and there’s an internal belief that a fair amount of them – let’s say five to 10 – could become available in the next year or two.

As for Simmons’ mental state and his potential return to play, little has changed. If teams are worried about how Simmons’ mental state and performance could be even when he’s left the Sixers, then maybe this could factor into limiting the trade market for him or at least delay things somewhat.
