The Philadelphia 76ers are still in pursuit of trying to move star guard Ben Simmons who is obviously not going to throw in a Sixers uniform ever again. He has made that abundantly clear and Philadelphia is looking to move him to get the saga over with.
However, they also acknowledge his obvious talent and they will not trade him for just anything. They need some star talent in return and that is why they’re willing to wait for the offseason when a guy like James Harden will become available for them.
There was one team that was always involved in rumors involving Simmons and that was the Sacramento Kings. Considering the fact that the Kings are a team that hasn’t made the playoffs since 2006, it made sense why they would pursue a deal for one of the game’s brighter stars.
The Sixers will continue to try and find a deal for Simmons before the Feb. 10 trade deadline. However, it is becoming obvious that a deal for the disgruntled star will become in the offseason when more stars will become available.
