A team and a name to watch in a trade for Ben Simmons


We’re exactly one month away from the February 10 NBA trade deadline, with all eyes on what Daryl Morey will do with Ben Simmons.

Simmons remains the biggest name in the commerce market, by Shams Charania of Athleticism, who notes that the Atlanta Hawks, Sacramento Kings, Portland Trail Blazers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Indiana Pacers, among others, have an interest in acquiring the three-time All-Star goaltender.

One team to watch that seems to have emerged are the Atlanta Hawks, who are currently away and are looking into the Eastern Conference playoff field. The Hawks had a surprise run to the conference finals last season, knocking out the Sixers along the way, struggling with a 17-22 mark, placing 12th in the conference.

One name Charania notes in a possible trade for Simmons is John Collins, who is growing increasingly frustrated with his lack of shots and recently challenged the locker room to no avail.

Collins, however, became increasingly frustrated with his role in Atlanta, multiple sources said. athleticism.

How would Collins fit in with Tobias Harris? It might be an awkward adjustment, but Collins has developed a nice 3-point shot, hitting 42.7 percent this season, scoring 17.4 points per game.

Another name Charania mentions is Cam Reddish, who recently suffered an ankle injury, scoring 11.9 points per game on 37.9% from three-pointers.

The Hawks could look to Simmons for help in their last five in the league defense.

Either way, all eyes are on Morey and the sand is moving quickly through the hourglass towards the NBA trade deadline.
