NBA super-agent Rich Paul is exerting his power against the Philadelphia 76ers and some felt like he may have gone too far.

On Tuesday it was reported that Ben Simmons had told the Sixers that he wanted out of Philly and is pushing for a trade before the start of the season.

In a meeting with 76ers brass last week in Los Angeles, Simmons told team co-managing partner Josh Harris, president of basketball operations Daryl Morey, general manager Elton Brand, and coach Doc Rivers that he no longer wants to remain a Sixer, according to multiple sources.Sources said the three-time All-Star also does not intend to report to training camp

Apparently, Paul not only wants Simmons out of Philly but he’s also pushing for his other client Tyrese Maxey to be traded by the team as well according to NBA insider Jason Dumas.

Dumas goes on to report that Paul told Maxey to back out of local charity events because he didn’t want him to get too attached to Philadelphia in the event that he gets traded.

Paul immediately received criticism from NBA fans for telling Maxey to not work with local Philadelphia charities amid trade rumors.
