To say that NBA All-Star Ben Simmons is disgruntled in Philadelphia would be doing a great injustice to the situation. The relationship between Simmons and the 76ers is completely unmendable, and he will be traded as soon as Daryl Morey finds a deal that he likes.
There have been a plethora of teams rumored to be interested in Simmons. To be quite frank, most teams around the league would love to have a six-foot-ten, All-Defensive Team guard in their rotation.
But there is one team that has constantly popped up in conversations dating all the way back to this past offseason – the Minnesota Timberwolves. And now that the Wolves are preparing for a playoff push, they should be calling up Morey seven days a week about Simmons.
However, Morey has been adamant about getting an All-Star-caliber player back in return for Simmons. That being said, as the situation grows old, the price on Simmons could eventually drop. This is where Minnesota would take their chance to strike.
