This is apparent from a report by Jake Fischer (bleacher Report). Accordingly, a trade of the 25-year-old could take a while – unless the Portland Trail Blazers do not make franchise star Damian Lillard.
The Blazers Point Guard continues to stand at the sixers at the top of the wish list, but according to Fischer some insiders suspect that the 31-year-old will look at the first week of season with the team around the new Head Coach Chauncey Billups and Portland will give a chance.
Simmons himself prefer a wallpaper change. According to information from Fischer, the three-time all-star expects a trade, he is not in personal contact with Moray, Coach Doc Rivers or Sixers-Star Joel Embid, who recently signed a contract extension in the city of fraternal love.

But Morey seems to do not miss anything, he was even ready to go with Simmons to the training camp, starting at the end of September. Even the possibly explosive Simmons situation after the disappointing playoff-from the Sixers and Criticism of Embiid and Coach Rivers, Morey does not avoid waiting for a suitable deal.
