Ben Simmons may have played his way out of Philadelphia, as the former No. 1 pick struggled to make an impact in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
With the season on the line, Simmons took just four shot attempts in Game 7 against the Atlanta Hawks. It was a brutal exit for the Philadelphia 76ers, especially after earning the top seed in the conference.
The 76ers have a huge decision to make this offseason regarding Simmons. Either they move on from the All-Star point guard or they try to run it back one more time.
Doc Rivers said the 76ers have a plan in place to fix Simmons' shooting woes, but there are still plenty of NBA analysts and fans who believe he'll be traded this offseason.
If a trade comes to fruition, there are a few landing spots for Simmons that stand out from the pack.
Here are the current betting favorites for Simmons, via BetOnline:
- Portland Trail Blazers (+200)
- Washington Wizards (+300)
- San Antonio Spurs (+400)
It makes sense that Portland has the best odds to land Simmons. Several analysts have discussed a potential swap involving Simmons and CJ McCollum.
Portland would get a playmaker to take some of the pressure off Damian Lillard, meanwhile Philadelphia would get a guard who can make tough shots from outside the paint.
