It was reported that Ben Simmons' agent Rich Paul met with the 76ers front office on Wednesday but the sides were no closer to a resolution. Ben Maller tells you why Ben Simmons hasn't and won't be traded before the deadline.
Ben Maller: "The value that Ben Simmons thinks he has in the NBA has been greatly exaggerated. If Ben Simmons was a great player, he would have already been traded. Great players don't spend half the season in purgatory. It is certainly possible that the Sixers will cave in...I wouldn't bet on it though. This has been going on for a long time."
