The Philadelphia 76ers are still working on trying to find a trade partner to take Ben Simmons off their hands. The disgruntled star has told the organization that he does not plan to play another game for the franchise and as they prepare for the coming season, the sooner a trade happens, the better.

Philadelphia was hoping to remain patient and bring him back to the roster in order to see if Damian Lillard or Bradley Beal would become available, but that might not be possible anymore. At this point, president Daryl Morey will have to try and find the best value possible.

There have been plenty of suitors, but they have not yet offered anything that would entice Morey to get a deal done. Per Zach Lowe of ESPN, the San Antonio Spurs talked to the Sixers about Simmons in an effort to bring in more talent, but the talks did not go too far:

THE SPURS TALKED with the Philadelphia 76ers about Ben Simmons, but those talks have not gotten far, sources said. They sniffed around intriguing young free agents — including Lauri Markkanen and John Collins, sources said — but snared neither.

Led by Gregg Popovich, the Spurs have been intrigued by Simmons’ ability. However, it still is tough to get a deal done right now. The Sixers need to find a way to find the right value for the embattled star and it seems like both sides are not budging on moving from their current stances.
