76ers have no interest in trading Ben Simmons for Lakers’ Russell Westbrook, per report

Article Summary:

It seems like we can count out one potential blockbuster deal, as the Sixers aren’t interested in sending Simmons to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for Russell Westbrook, according to Sam Amick of The Athletic. As an aside, sources say that’s also the reason the Sixers have zero interest in the prospect of swapping Simmons for Westbrook and alleviating the Lakers’ fit concerns with their superstar trio.

Though Simmons is better than Westbrook defensively, they operate in largely the same way on the offensive end of the floor, so it certainly makes sense that the Sixers wouldn’t be interested in swapping Simmons for Westbrook. Plus, at 33 years old, Westbrook wouldn’t fit Philadelphia’s Embiid-centric timeline either.
