Ben Simmons on the court

The basketball gods may have one heck of a sense of humor when it comes to Ben Simmons.

Veteran NBA writer Marc Stein said in a post to his Substack this week that the Atlanta Hawks have emerged as a suitor to watch for the disgruntled Philadelphia 76ers star Simmons.

Hawks GM Travis Schlenk hinted earlier this week that the team would be active at the trade deadline, which is set for Feb. 10.

Of course, the irony of Simmons ending up with Atlanta would be off the charts. It was Simmons’ performance in the Sixers’ second-round loss to the Hawks last year that started this whole mess. He infamously passed up a wide-open dunk in Game 7 to help lose the series, resulting in teammate Joel Embiid and coach Doc Rivers essentially throwing him under the bus. That led to the deterioration of Simmons’ relationship with the Sixers, and it has not recovered since.

For now, Simmons remains away from the Sixers as he continues to seek a trade and has now been fined a crazy total amount by the team. Meanwhile, Atlanta is in need of a major jolt at just 17-20 on the year. Simmons ending up with the Hawks would prove that the art of irony is definitely not dead.
