Article Summary:

Trade talks involving the Philadelphia 76ers’ All-Star guard have been gaining steam in recent days, and three-team deals are on the table, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe.

Another factor that could lead to a trade in the near future is that players who signed new contracts in free agency this summer will be eligible to be traded on Dec. 15. That’s an additional 106 players who can be included in trades, or nearly 25 percent of the league.

One specific note that’s worth mentioning is that as it stands a trade sending Simmons to the Portland Trail Blazers – one of the most widely discussed possibilities – seems unlikely as a two-team deal.
