NBA Rumors: Toronto Raptors and the dream of signing Ben Simmons

Everything points to Ben Simmons will be the franchise player Brooklyn Nets looking ahead to the long-term future of the New York franch


Everything points to will be the franchise player looking ahead to the long-term future of the New York franchise in the NBA. The departure of Kevin Durant via transfer this summer seems practically a given, and Kyrie Irving will stay one more year only because he has not been able to advance in the negotiations with the Los Angeles Lakers.

That is why the Nets have decided to reject all offers that come to them for Simmons. According to Sean Deveney of Heavy.com, He has been very interested in acquiring the Australian player, taking advantage of the fact that his value in the market is low. But Brooklyn has not even considered considering the offer from Canada.

Apparently, the Raptors would have set up a package for Ben Simmons that was headed by OG Anunoby. Said offer was completed by the presence of Khem Birch, Malachi Flynn and Precious Achiuwa, in addition to two first rounds of the Draft.

Take advantage of the Anunoby exit request

Toronto’s idea was to take advantage of the transfer request of an OG Anunoby who is not happy with his role in the Canadian franchise. The player claims more importance on the track. Although the about his departure have faded over the days since the opening of the 2022 Free Agency market, it is not ruled out that the team may agree to a trade at any time, before the start of the 2022 season. /2. 3.
