Wolves' Sachin Gupta all in on acquiring Ben Simmons

  Wolves' Sachin Gupta all in on acquiring Ben Simmons Darren Wolfson: Sachin Gupta wants Ben Simmons. The same hurdles remain, but can he now be more creative on three-team scenarios? That still seems to be the key. But make not mistake: Gupta is all in on acquiring Ben Simmons. © Provided by HoopsHype Ben Simmons, Philadelphia 76ers Source: Spotify What’s the buzz on Twitter? Candace Buckner @CandaceDBuckner Good morning! I wrote a column about Ben Simmons and who gets to be called a ‘superstar’ in the NBA: washingtonpost.

Shams Charania: “Simmons has mentally checked out from the 76ers, and if he was ever to report, it would certainly be with short-term intentions.”

Why isn’t Ben Simmons a Pacer yet? – 9:05 AM David Aldridge @davidaldridgedc

Ben Simmons playing in front of 76ers fans is a 'factor' in him wanting out of Philadelphia?

  Ben Simmons playing in front of 76ers fans is a 'factor' in him wanting out of Philadelphia? Sixers fans are known as some of the toughest in the NBA. They've been especially hard on Simmons, who had a hideous playoff performance last season. Windhorst's comments come after The Athletic's Shams Charania reported Saturday that Simmons declined to meet with several of his teammates in Los Angeles this week. Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris and Matisse Thybulle were among the players who wanted to attempt to convince Simmons to remain with the franchise for the 2021-22 season.

The start of the season is imminent – and Ben Simmons is still holding out, while Kyrie Irving isn’t playing. What happens there, and will Lillard & Beal stay put?

Wolves think they are the perfect team for Ben Simmons

  Wolves think they are the perfect team for Ben Simmons Jon Krawczynski: (Sachin Gupta) absolutely is a fan of Ben Simmons. He was in Philadelphia when Ben Simmons first got there. I do think that overall, just the organization’s position is that Ben Simmons is a perfect fit for their roster for what they need and what Ben Simmons needs from a team around him. So I do think that they are going to continue to pursue Ben Simmons aggressively, I can’t say, you know, 100% that, you know, they’re in the driver’s seat, or it’s going to happen or anything like that.

76ers' Ben Simmons willing to sit out entire season if he isn't traded?

  76ers' Ben Simmons willing to sit out entire season if he isn't traded? The 76ers reportedly aren't willing to budge on their asking price of an All-Star, draft selections and pick swaps for Simmons, and Simmons also seems comfortable in his stance. It appears we're no closer to any resolution regarding this standoff as October nears. Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

More on this storyline

Shams Charania: “The 76ers continue to hope that Ben Simmons reports to the team and rejoins the roster as soon as possibe, as one source told me. It’s a waiting game.” -via Twitter @ShamsCharania / October 8, 2021 Ben Simmons reportedly has had enough of Philadelphia 76ers fans, and apparently the feeling is mutual. Fans in attendance for Wednesday night’s AEW Dynamite event at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia broke out an anti-Simmons chant mid-event. Take a listen to this, though beware of the use of the F-word. -via Larry Brown Sports / October 8, 2021 Darren Wolfson: He has planted some seeds including with Philadelphia. Sachin Gupta has reached out to Philadelphia. He has an excellent relationship with multiple people in the Philadelphia front office, including Daryl Morey, so Gupta has established contact officially with Philadelphia to register trade interest in Ben Simmons. -via Spotify / October 6, 2021

Joel Embiid tells 76ers fans to support Ben Simmons before home opener: 'He's still our brother' .
The Friday meeting between Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and the rest of the Philadelphia 76ers may have been the turning point for the organization. Embiid expressed support for Simmons prior to Friday's home opener, telling fans to stand by Simmons. Embiid says a lot has happened but he’s still supporting Ben Simmons! Joel Embiid told me the meeting with Ben Simmons today “helped us as a team.” He also told me “we are a way better team with Ben and hopefully it ends up that he sticks around… we all love him, I love plying with him.
