The Philadelphia 76ers and Portland Trail Blazers have engaged on trade discussions for Ben Simmons. The talks centered around a swap of Simmons for C.J. McCollum, but died due to Philadelphia seeking multiple first round picks. Daryl Morey reportedly asked for three first round picks and pick swaps in the intervening years, in addition to McCollum.
To this point, the Sixers have found little traction in Simmons trade talks. Morey continues to set a high price for his disgruntled All-Star.
The 76ers have kept and open dialogue with Simmons' camp, but nothing has changed with Simmons' trade request. Simmons has reportedly packed and moved his belongings from his Philadelphia-area home. He'll soon list the home for sale, as he continues to hold out for a trade.
