As of recent reports coming from sources such as Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer and ESPN’s Marc J. Spears, Daryl Morey is looking to shop Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris in a package deal.

Even Kyle Kuzma shared a laugh about this on Twitter. What team would be willing to take on $80 million for Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris? What would the package in return be!?

I believe Atlanta, Boston, Cleveland, Sacramento and the Lakers are the five realistic teams that could get this done and have it still be worth it for the Sixers in return. That being said, NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported on NBA Today, “the situation could linger until the 2022 NBA draft and there is “no movement” on a potential Ben Simmons Trade. Scary news for Joel Embiid and the City of Brotherly Love.

Ben Simmons has still not been traded. Is it time for Daryl Morey and the Sixers to get something done?

Even though almost all of Philadelphia has reached a point where we just want anything for this dude and to move on, it doesn’t seem like anybody wants this guy, yet alone his contract. This will linger until he shows interest in working on his game and implementing his work into the game. Now everybody who knows me well knows I want Tobias Harris gone just as bad. But add his $36 million to a trade talk and you’re simply asking for disaster. I mean, what team would do this?

Maybe I should add the Rockets to my list of realistic teams because John Wall is the only caliber player with that sort of contract your going to get for Ben Simmons right now. Which is crazy because it’s another Rich Paul client. What is even crazier is Daryl Morey reiterated he’d rather have Ben play than to trade him. The statement isn’t crazy, its the fact that Ben STILL isn’t holding himself accountable for his actions and just playing, instead missing out on over $10 million thus far. So Is it time for Daryl to throw in the towel? Many, myself included, believe so

Why hold a guy who will never show up? His stock will never get higher, just his contract. The NBA world will not be fooled by July open gym Ben jumpers again. If Sacramento would really give up De’Aaron Fox and or Tyrese Haliburton, Why wouldn’t you do it to get better immediately? Jaylen Brown was in trade talks! These are three names that are potential stars in this league if they are not already. My point is Ben’s stock isn’t getting any higher so get a deal done. I’m just starting to not understand why Daryl is STILL putting up with this nonsense. Look what Embiid does with Georges Niang and Shake Milton. Imagine if we had semi-better players.

Throw in the Towel Daryl,
