Simmons, on the other hand, appears more than interested in playing for a new team. He expects to be traded and has not personally been in close contact with Morey, Embiid or head coach Doc Rivers this offseason, sources told Bleacher Report. Simmons’ representation has further canvassed rival front offices, gauging their interest in creating a new home for the 25-year-old All-Star and this year’s runner-up in Defensive Player of the Year.
Embiid, who represented himself in the negotiations, became eligible for a supermax extension this summer after finishing second in MVP voting and second-team All-NBA with averages of 28.5 points and 10.6 rebounds in 51 regular-season games in 2020-21. This contract is fully guaranteed, sources said, and does not include the same provisions protecting the Sixers in case of catastrophic injury to Embiid’s lower back or feet, like the five-year, $147.7 million deal he signed in 2017.
