Ben Simmons’ future with the Philadelphia 76ers is still unclear, after his disappointing presence in the series vs. the Atlanta Hawks.
(via NBC Sports):
“I hear from executives all the time that are loving this ‘Ben Simmons trade value has cratered’ conversation because they hope that Philadelphia believes that.
I think his trade value is actually higher than what’s being publicly portrayed. But you’re going to continue to hear a lot of the negativity around Ben Simmons.
In other words, I think people value him pretty high across the league because I do think there’s a belief that someone’s going to figure the shooting thing out.”
Simmons still brings a lot of value as an All-Star player, who finished second in Defensive Player of the Year voting. He averaged 14.3 points and 6.9 assists a game the past season.
