Ever since the Atlanta Hawks eliminated the Philadelphia 76ers in the second round of the playoffs, Ben Simmons has been linked with an exit from the Philadelphia 76ers. There was a lot of speculation about a Ben Simmons trade during draft night, but it never materialized, and as of now Ben Simmons is still a part of the 76ers organization.
There are a fair number of teams that have been reported to be interested in a trade for Ben Simmons, but it seems as though the Philadelphia 76ers are being patient with a trade, and gauging the return that they would get. However, insider Keith Pompey believes that a Ben Simmons trade is coming. It makes sense that the 76ers would want to get the best value possible for their 25-year-old All-Star, but it is clear that a fresh start would be great for all parties involved.
