NBA teams waiting to see whether the
Philadelphia 76ers would reduce their asking price for point guard
Ben Simmons have reportedly seen the opposite happen.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported
Wednesday the Sixers’ demands for Simmons have actually been “growing
in price” despite opposing front offices’ hesitancy to offer
Philly’s preferred “top 25-caliber players,” which leaves the
situation in a continued stalemate.

The first notable domino to fall ahead of the Feb. 10 trade deadline was Rajon Rondo, who was dealt to the Cleveland Cavaliers from the Los Angeles Lakers after Ricky Rubio’s season-ending knee injury.

In the rumor mill, the Simmons saga in Philadelphia continues to dominate the headlines as the 76ers star has yet to suit up this season amid a desire for a change of scenery. Numerous teams have been linked to Simmons, including the Portland Trail Blazers, who have had difficulty building around Damian Lillard. The 31-year-old guard has also been the subject of speculation around a possible move given the franchise’s struggles.

Other names that have been linked to possible moves include the Sacramento Kings’ Marvin Bagley III along with Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner of the Indiana Pacers.
