Article Summary:

Ben Simmons has demanded a trade from the Philadelphia 76ers, per Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, who reported on Tuesday that Simmons has told Sixers brass that he no longer wants to be with the team and doesn’t intend to report for training camp. Replace Gordon with Simmons, and while you lose some depth and certainly scoring with Porter, a Big 3 of Jokic, Murray and Simmons is more balanced and could not be more perfect as a shooting big and a playmaking point guard are exactly the supporting parts Simmons needs. Memphis Grizzlies

You could argue Memphis as a straight-up trade partner for Simmons, sending all three of Brooks, Melton and Clarke to the Sixers in exchange for Simmons. It’s not perfect for Memphis, but what other avenue does it have to get a player of Simmons’ caliber? Might they take a shot on sheer talent and potential if the Sixers were willing to dance?

7. Cleveland Cavaliers

Cleveland would give Simmons his best opportunity to continue being a focal point offensively, if he prioritizes that over winning.
