Golden State Warriors Deny Proposed Trade By 76ers Offer Of Ben Simmons For Wiseman, Wiggins, And Two 2021 and Future First Round Picks

The Philadelphia 76ers have seemingly given up on star PG Ben Simmons and have tried to trade him to the Golden State Warriors.

The Golden State Warriors have rejected an offer from the Philadelphia 76ers of Ben Simmons for James Wiseman, Andrew Wiggins, the No. 7 and 14 picks in the 2021 draft, along with two future first round picks.

This would have drastically approved the Warriors as Simmons is a star point guard and would add a different dynamic to the backcourt but to give up that much on their end seems a bit much.

It reportedly did not take long for them to turn down the offer. One league executive said the Sixers are making “totally outlandish offers.”

“The Sixers have been canvassing around the league, and they are asking for a massive return for Ben Simmons,” ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Wednesday. “One GM described it to me as Harden-esque, similar to what Houston wanted in the talks that led to them trading [James] Harden to Brooklyn.”

Clearly the Sixers, even though they are shopping Simmons around, think highly of him. So why not keep him? I highly doubt that the rest of the leagues view Simmons as a franchise game-changer like James Harden.
