Article Summary:

Again, Simmons isn’t an easy fit with the team’s star, Julius Randle, another player who needs to have plenty of control of the ball to be maximized.

Charania reiterated in his report that the Sixers are still asking teams for “An All-Star-caliber player and/or multiple first-round draft picks” in return for Simmons. Even though some of these players may not be to the Sixers’ interest and won’t be coming to Philly in a trade, this increase of players on the trade market can make it easier to match salaries and make things work in multi-team deals. Well, in Charania’s latest piece, he noted that there is “Renewed optimism” about Irving potentially returning to play for Brooklyn:

It remains unclear whether Irving’s potential return this season would come via vaccination to meet New York City’s COVID-19 vaccine requirement or by Brooklyn opening the door for him to play road games and practice at home, but sources have indicated a renewed belief that Irving could play this season after all.
