If recent reports is anything to go by, then Ben Simmons departure from Sixers is imminent, as reports claims there’s many teams linked with acquiring him. While there’s likely a lot of different teams that the 76ers are in touch with over a potential trade, a franchise that has been frequently mentioned alongside Simmons’ name in trade rumors is the Indiana Pacers.
A recent report by Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer revealed that the Philadelphia 76ers would be willing to send Ben Simmons to the Indiana Pacers if they were to get Malcolm Brogdon, Caris LeVert, and a first-round pick in return. Pompey claimed that this particular package “should be enough” to get a deal done.
The 76ers have been adamant and consistent about not trading Ben Simmons just to make a trade.
With Simmons on the roster, they’re a contender for the Eastern Conference title. The Sixers are only interested in a deal that would improve their chances or at least keep them there.
