Ben Simmons has been in the trade block since the end of last season. The Philadelphia 76ers’ superstar attracted interest from several teams, including the Kings and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

According to Marc Stein, the Cavaliers could make another addition to their roster, having their eye in the three-time All-Star.

“…league sources say that Cleveland continues to keep its hat in the ring to try to pry Ben Simmons from the Sixers,” Stein wrote in his latest piece.

The former No. 1 pick from the 2016 NBA Draft has openly expressed his desire to be traded from Philly and will not be returning to training camp, which is due to start later this month.

The Sixers’ steep asking price is the biggest obstacle for a deal to become a reality, after Simmons had a bad run with his team in the 2020-21 postseason.
