Disgruntled Philadelphia 76ers All-Star Ben Simmons would have no problem with a trade to the Sacramento Kings. That’s been a rumored landing spot for Simmons for a while, but the Kings have been hesitant to part with young star De’Aaron Fox in a deal.
A trade for Simmons is seen as a way for Sacramento to improve their defense. The idea proposed is to trade Buddy Hield and either Tyrese Haliburton or Davion Mitchell as part of the deal. The Kings can then team Simmons with Fox and whoever is left of Haliburton and Mitchell to build a solid defensive foundation.
Simmons remains a holdout from Sixers camp. Sources indicated that Philadelphia hasn’t budged on a trade, as they continue to hold out for a deal involving Damian Lillard or Bradley Beal.
