Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons is reportedly open to the idea of landing with the Cleveland Cavaliers, although there are question marks regarding the Cavs’ ability to put together a trade package that would satisfy the 76ers.
Per sources, Ben Simmons would be open to joining the Cleveland Cavaliers.
But, I do not think the Cavaliers cannot put together a trade package at this time that would interest the 76ers.

Simmons, a three-time All-Star, would be an extremely interesting addition for Cleveland. At 25 years old, he would fit the timeline of the organization’s rebuild quite well.
He would also become one of the most talented players on the roster. Despite valid concerns about his inability to develop a jump shot, he still brings a lot to the table.
Simmons’ 6-foot-11 frame allows him to defend virtually any player on the floor. It also makes him a plus rebounder. To top it all off, he’s a very good distributor.
In the 2020-21 season, he averaged 14.3 points, 7.2 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game.
