NBA Trade Rumors: 76ers rejected Pistons trade proposal including Jerami Grant for Ben Simmons

The Philadelphia 76ers had another trade offer for Ben Simmons, which was from the Detroit Pistons.

Like every other trade proposal the Sixers have gotten for Simmons, they turned it down.

The fact that the Sixers continue to hang onto Simmons for whatever right price is absolutely foolish, as that was a solid offer from Detroit.

The NBA trade deadline is February 10, so if the 76ers want to make a deal to send Simmons away, that’s the deadline until the summer.
