Sixers Not Happy With Ben Simmons Trade Offers


The offers for Ben Simmons have been coming in fast and furious from teams all over the league, but a new report says the Philadelphia 76ers are not pleased at all.

According to the PhillyVoice, the Sixers characterize the incoming offers as consisting of "role players and picks", which simply won't get it done in a trade for the three-time All-Star. 

"Internally, team sources view a lot of the reported offers floated around the league as transparent attempts to lower Simmons’ trade value below where it actually is,” maintains the report. 

Simmons has proven himself as a standout on the defensive end, as a two-time NBA 1st team All-Defensive team selection. His playmaking and rebounding skills are also elite. But until he develops the confidence and ability in his shot, he won't reach the levels expected of him when he entered the league.  

Sources say the Sixers "are under no pressure or rush to deal him if the right opportunity doesn't present itself."
