More than ever on the start, Ben Simmons is haggled by the Sixers, who are looking for the best possible counterpart. After a refusal in the East, a team stands ready to go on the offensive. We also have an idea of the package.
Become almost undesirable on the side of the 76ers, Ben Simmons should change franchise during the summer, at least according to the latest rumors of the halls. It is still possible to see a turnaround, especially since it will be necessary to convince Philly with a good offer, regardless of the bad season experienced by the Australian.
But it is all but confirmed: Simmons is indeed in talks for a trade. There are no less than 5 franchises interested in its services, but we are far from an end. There is no official offer, at least to this day.
That could quickly change on the side of the Western Conference, because it is said that the Kings are very offensive in this soap opera. What if this team refused to include a player in the transaction, that does not mean that it does not have other assets. This is the case according to journalist Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee, which details a potential offer.
The Sacramento Kings would probably be willing to offer a package that includes Buddy Hield, Marvin Bagley III and one or more future first-round draft picks in a deal for Ben Simmons, per @JandersonSacBee pic.twitter.com/umGBVW2dne

The Kings would likely be willing to make an offer that included Buddy Hield, Marvin Bagley III and one or more first-round drafting (s) in a deal for Ben Simmons.
If so, that would definitely be a pretty good deal for the 76ers, who will obviously try to negotiate. For now, no confirmation, but we imagine that Sacramento will soon take action if the desire of the front office is real.
The problem is, the Kings aren’t the only ones interested. We know thata franchise from the East also tried its luck, but without success. If this continues, then Simmons could leave fairly quickly, provided the right offer arrives.
Ben Simmons is more on the go than ever, and the franchises are starting to put together their best deal. Conclusion in the weeks to come? Anything is possible at this point, and the Kings probably won’t know very far.
