Hawks, Sixers discussed Ben Simmons trade

- by

Last week, the Atlanta Hawks considered sending John Collins, Cam Reddish, and a first-round pick to the Sixers in exchange for Simmons, according to sources. However, the talks stopped after Harris’ name was brought into the deal. “There’s no way that kind of deal is going to happen,” a source said. “There’s maybe one [team] on a stretch that can take back Tobias. But I just think it’s a long shot.”

ICYMI, the Sixers have their sights set on a summer deal for James Harden and appear willing to hold onto Ben Simmons past this trade deadline. More here, with @Shams Charania, at @TheAthletic

“No one is giving up three picks and an A-level player, who may be a B next to Joel, just to get Ben back,” a league source said.
James Harden or bust? Sources indicate the #Sixers are all-in even if it means prolonging the Ben Simmons saga inquirer.com/sixers/sixers-…6:27 PM

There are 17 days until the NBA trade deadline, and if Ben Simmons is still a Sixer at that point, I will be extremely disappointed. – 3:42 PM

Alongside this morning’s Sixers-related Harden reporting, there was a refresh on teams who have discussed (recently or earlier in the season) the possibility of getting Simmons.
So which rumored suitors for Ben Simmons make most sense for deadline deal?

Report: 76ers requested multiple first-rounders to trade Ben Simmons for Kings’ Tyrese Haliburton or Hawks’ John Collins nba.nbcsports.com/2022/01/24/rep…2:23 PM

The Ben Simmons reports are becoming more and more ludicrous. Oh Brooklyn is gonna be leaping at the chance to trade Harden for him this summer? Give me a break. You float pie-in-the-sky stuff when you have no leverage. Philly has no leverage. He’s legit damaged as a trade asset. – 11:02 AM

Story on the Ben Simmons latest with @Shams Charania, at @TheAthletic
Based on the current market, the Sixers have their eyes on landing a superstar this summer – preferably James Harden.

76ers prefer to wait to pursue James Harden or another superstar in offseason and want to save Ben Simmons for that potential deal over current market, per sources with knowledge and rival teams.

With Ben Simmons gone, Joel Embiid has had to step up and do more on the offensive end in terms of his passing and playmaking for others. He discussed that after a win over the Spurs on the road. #Sixers sixerswire.usatoday.com/2022/01/24/joe… via @SixersWire7:58 AM
