The Philadelphia 76ers and Rich Paul have progressed in talks on a resolution to bring Ben Simmons back to the team in the near future.

Discussions are ongoing and the plan is for the 76ers to continue to canvass the league for an acceptable trade. The 76ers, however, also want to convince Simmons to remain with the team long-term.

The chances have increased that Simmons will report to the 76ers over the past few days.

With Monday's preseason game, Simmons will move pass the $1 million mark in terms of loss pay.
