The trade saga involving Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers could be coming to an end soon. While the 76ers have told teams they are comfortable keeping Simmons on the roster heading into the 2021-22 NBA season, rival executives around the league aren’t buying it.

According to The Athletic, those executives think it is a matter of when, not if, Simmons is traded away. His tenure with the organization is likely coming to an end sooner than later.

The 25-year old Simmons got involved in NBA trade rumors this offseason after yet another disappointing playoff performance. He wasn’t the sole reason for the Philadelphia 76ers being eliminated in seven games by the Atlanta Hawks in the second round, but he was one of the reasons.

Simmons’ reluctance to shoot the ball on offense was too much for Philadelphia to overcome in the postseason. But, a fresh start would likely do him and the organization some good.
