The Ben Simmons trade saga continues to drag on for the Philadelphia 76ers. They’ve spent months trying to move on from their disgruntled star, but to no avail. Now they have decided to add a new piece to their trade negotiations.

This feels like one of two things is happening in Philly. Either the 76ers are getting desperate or they think they have way too much leverage in a Ben Simmons trade.

This could just be them exhausting all of their options, but it’s hard to see how this will actually help negotiations. They were already asking teams to take on one big contract with Ben Simmons. Now they’re asking teams to take on two for a tandem that hasn’t won anything.

Unsurprisingly, NBA fans aren’t sold on the idea.

With less than a month until the NBA trade deadline, the Philadelphia 76ers are going to need to get their Ben Simmons problem figured out quickly. The solution could involve throwing in extra pieces to make a trade more appealing.

It just seems unlikely that Tobias Harris and his oversized contract will be that necessary piece. I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
