Sixers, Hawks discussed blockbuster Ben Simmons-John Collins trade

- by

The 76ers and Hawks briefly kicked around a trade of Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris for John Collins, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari, league sources told HoopsHype. However, those talks stalled quickly, with Atlanta uninterested in Harris and unlikely to be able to flip him to a third team.

#NBA column: A smaller starting lineup without Ben Simmons has resulted in the #Sixers being a less-effective rebounding team this season. That needs to change in the second half of the year if they plan to move up in the East: https://t.co/TTvWACN8vV #76ers pic.twitter.com/tgPyjF5C8Y12:20 PM

The Pacers aren’t moving Domantas Sabonis unless they get a Nikola Vucevic type of package in return. More on Sabonis, James Harden, Ben Simmons, Robert Covington, Eric Gordon, Jalen Brunson, and others with colleague @Yossi Gozlan on the @Jorge Sierra podcast hoopshype.com/lists/nba-trad…10:56 AM

Mavs losing THJ to a fractured 5th metatarsal. Historically that’s at least an 8-week injury, with a more complicated recovery for a fair number of them, e.g. Zion, KD, Ben Simmons. – 11:38 PM

Daryl Morey wasting an MVP level season from Joel Embiid and hoping to trade Ben Simmons in a sign and trade for 32-year old James Harden this summer is not the Daryl Morey I remember. He never sat around and waited – 1:08 PM
Sam Amick @sam_amick
Is there a James Harden-Daryl Morey reunion in the works? The Sixers certainly hope so. And as we reported yesterday morning, that vision makes it all the more likely that Ben Simmons stays put past the trade deadline. Details here, with @Shams Charania

Matisse Thybulle (shoulder) has been upgraded to questionable for tonight’s game against the Pelicans.
Danny Green (hip), Seth Curry (ankle), Shake Milton (back) and Ben Simmons (personal reasons) remain out. – 11:56 AM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Let’s say, hypothetically, the 76ers have the option to trade Ben Simmons straight up for James Harden, Bradley Beal or Damian Lillard in the offseason.
Who do you think their first choice would be? Who would your first choice be? – 11:36 AM

More on this storyline

Danilo Gallinari’s name also started to circulate among league executives on Monday. His $20 million salary could serve as cap filler for a larger impact veteran. Only $5 million of Gallinari’s salary is guaranteed for next season, the final of his three-year deal. Meanwhile, Solomon Hill, out for the season with a hamstring tear, is a strong trade candidate in order to open a roster spot. -via Bleacher Report / January 14, 2022
Danilo Gallinari on trade rumors: “I’d like to stay until the end of the season also because changing in-season is never easy, for many reasons. But anything can happen “. -via Sky.it / January 12, 2022
Interviewed by Sky Sport, Danilo Gallinari said that he would love to remain with the Hawks for the remainder of the season. There were rumors about his possible trade in the past days. “I am ready to stay and I would love to remain for the remainder of the season because a change of a team is never easy, for several reasons. But anything can happen” Gallinari said. -via Sportando / January 10, 2022
