After a month without news on the Ben Simmons trade front, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Rich Paul met with the Sixers front office in Philadelphia to make progress on a trade. Stances unchanged: Simmons no closer to playing this season – and Sixers determined to bring back a significant player in trade. “The thing from a coaching standpoint that I’ve never liked… someone will create a trade, meaning they’ll suggest a trade, and they’ll report on a trade they suggested.”
Rivers said each player reacts to trade rumors differently. “Hopefully, we’ll have an answer soon.”
Harris also addressed his inclusion in trade talks.
