We got a “Shams WOW” Monday morning as Charania that Simmons has provided the Sixers with the names of each mental health professional hes working with. The franchise has sought further details on the matter.

The news came with an article link, and there was a little nugget that was VERY juicy for Sixers fans. That the Boston Celtics were interested in trading for Ben Simmons but any deal for Simmons would HAVE to include Jaylen Brown.


Its worth mentioning that Shams also states “No progress made” in a deal. Ok, now were talking. The 3rd overall pick from the 2016 draft has developed into a really nice player for the Celtics. This season hes averaging over 25 points per game on a Celtics team that is quickly taking on water. As of Monday the Celtics are just 4-6 on the season. Meanwhile the Sixers are atop the Eastern conference with a 8-2 record, and hold all the cards.

Things could be heating up….
