• Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons will make roughly $145 million over the next four seasons and will be the topic of trade rumors this NBA offseason.
  • The NBA All-Star has fallen out of favor with the team's fanbase after his postseason performance against the Atlanta Hawks.

The Philadelphia 76ers are "bullish" on All-Star point guard Ben Simmons after struggling in their recent National Basketball Association playoff series, which damaged his value around the league.

Simmons, 24, is in the middle of a sports public relations nightmare following his performance against the Atlanta Hawks. The co-franchise star averaged 9.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, 8.6 assists and shot an abysmal 15-of-45 from the free-throw line. Simmons was passive on the offensive end. He appeared to want no part in shooting the ball from a distance, and at critical moments in Game 7, seemed to avoid the foul-line by passing the ball.
