According to Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com, the Cleveland Cavaliers may have a persuading trade package to obtain 76ers guard, Ben Simmons this offseason.

Simmons’ 2019-20 season has come to an end after a report that he will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

Simmons averaged 16.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 8 assists per game this season.

Chris Fedor on the potential blockbuster trade:

The Cavs believe they have enough to assemble an enticing package, especially with recent first-rounders littering the roster, a top six pick coming in October and a future first from the Milwaukee Bucks.

Those picks, combined with one of the young guys and some salary filler, is a good start. It’s also why the Cavs have spent the first few years of the post-LeBron era stockpiling assets. In any potential trade discussion, the Cavs would cling tightest to Kevin Porter Jr.”
