We did recently learn the Sixers may have a list of 30 players who would satisfy them in a potential Ben Simmons trade, according to Sam Amick of The Athletic.

A source with knowledge of the Sixers’ thinking indicated that Oklahoma City Thunder combo-guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is one player the Sixers have had talks about internally and could be open to trading for.
The Sixers seem prepared to plow right through the trade deadline without making a deal, although they’re open to other outcomes, including Simmons returning to the team as a full-time player and rejoining Doc Rivers’ rotation. Simmons is not going to be the only Sixers player to hear his name in rumors during that period and he may not even be the most likely player on the roster to be dealt.
