Things are about to get real awkward in Philadelphia for Ben Simmons.

On Thursday night NBA insider Shams Charania dropped a bombshell report when he revealed that a league source told him that the Sixers were now willing to include Simmons in a trade for disgruntled Rockets superstar James Harden.

Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey immediately denied the rumors that he was in talks with the Rockets to trade Simmons.

On Friday morning Simmons appeared to react to the trade rumors with a single emoji that sent NBA fans into a tizzy.

It’s unclear whether the Sixers would pull the trigger on Harden but it seems like the rumors are going to be a cloud over the organization until after the Rockets move the superstar guard.
