The Philadelphia 76ers and New Orleans Pelicans reportedly had discussions on a trade centered on Ben Simmons for Anthony Davis.

Both Davis and Simmons are represented by Rich Paul.

"That's why I was so intrigued by the Ben Simmons for Davis (scenario)," said Bill Simmons. "By the way, I heard there were conversations on both sides with that."

Simmons will be eligible for a contract extension this offseason and his fit with the 76ers is not quite settled.
