If Ben Simmons becomes available in trade talks, sources tell The Athletic that the Minnesota Timberwolves will enter the bidding. Minnesota would potentially be a better fit for Simmons given the skill-set of Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards.
The future of Simmons with the Philadelphia 76ers is unclear following the team’s second round exit and his reluctance to shoot late in games.
The 76ers considered trading Simmons as part of a package for James Harden in January.
Daryl Morey and Gersson Rosas worked together for many years in the Houston Rockets’ front office, which could conceivably help the parties with trade talks.
