Report: 76ers requested multiple first-rounders to trade Ben Simmons for Kings’ Tyrese Haliburton or Hawks’ John Collins

NBC Sports


Article Summary:

76ers president Daryl Morey said he lowered his asking price for Ben Simmons from a list of about 30 trade targets to a “Top-40 player who’s a great fit.”

That brought to mind players like Kings guard Tyrese Haliburton and Hawks big John Collins.

Shams Charania of The Athletic:

For Simmons, the 76ers have asked the Kings for guard Tyrese Haliburton and multiple first-round picks, and asked for a package around John Collins and multiple first-round picks from the Hawks along with Atlanta taking on Tobias Harris, multiple sources tell The Athletic.

If acquiring Simmons and Harris, the Hawks would have to send out even more salary than just Collins’.

This report jibes with a previous report the 76ers have increased their asking price for Simmons.
