Former NBL great believes Ben Simmons’ future will be decided after Christmas

USA Today


Article Summary:

The Sixers would like to have him with the team while trying complete a deal that would get a top 25 player in exchange for one of the league’s bright talents.

Lanard Copeland, who also played for the Sixers in the 1989-90 season, told AU News he believes something will happen with Simmons a little after the holiday:

“There are teams out there in the NBA who are struggling and would love a Ben Simmons right now,” the Melbourne Tigers legend said on Sportsday NSW.

“They’re working on trades. I heard there were 12 teams staking him right now.

“Philadelphia are probably going to be smart and ship him to the West Coast because they know how valuable Ben is.

“They don’t want to play Ben five or six times a year. They send him to the West Coast and whatever deal works best for them, then things will happen.

“From what I’m hearing, something is going to happen right after Christmas and, hopefully, Ben will be playing again.

“Ben’s another superstar kid. I played with his father and you want to see success, you want to see him having fun.”

It will be interesting if there is movement considering the Sixers will still have to be sure they get the top value in return for one of their top talents.
