Sixers Reportedly Have a List of ‘Approximately 30’ Players That Would Work in Ben Simmons Trade

Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey said in October the team would need a “difference maker” in order to trade Ben Simmons.

Now some of those names are being revealed. Amick named Damian Lillard, James Harden and Bradley Beal as high on the Sixers’ internal list of potential pieces in a Simmons deal.


Apparently they have 30 names.

“A source with knowledge of the list said there are approximately 30 players who would satisfy the Sixers in a Simmons swap,” Amick reported, “and there’s an internal belief that a fair amount of them — let’s say five to 10 — could become available in the next year or two.”

As far as a possible timeline, Amick reported “it does not appear any deal will happen soon.” He quoted a Sixers source who said, “This is like a multi-year thing,”

Sucks for Sixers fans this is going to carry on for what looks like years.

Or at least until the Feb. 10 trade deadline.
