Another Outrageous Ben Simmons Trade Offer Rejected—This Time by Warriors

The Philadelphia 76ers are still apparently not operating in the world of reality, asking for an outrageous haul from the Golden State Warriors in return for Ben Simmons, which the Warriors "quickly declined."

Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman, Nos. 7 & 14 picks in 2021 Draft, plus two future 1st Round picks.... all to get Simmons. Uh, no thank you, say the Warriors.

Earlier this week, there were reports of the Sixers asking for an even bigger king's ransom from the Toronto Raptors, including a Kyle Lowry sign-and-trade, OG Anunoby, Fred VanVleet and the No. 4 pick in the draft. 

Another report had Philly asking the San Antonio Spurs for four first-round picks, three first-round pick swaps, and a young player in exchange for Simmons.

This latest rejected offer to Golden State proves that Daryl Morey and the Sixers are operating in a different world than the rest of the NBA. We'll see if they come down to earth before the draft on Thursday night, or if this Simmons drama plays out into the summer and fall.
