PHILADELPHIA — Now that the Philadelphia 76ers were eliminated from the NBA Playoffs in shocking fashion, the rumors have begun to swirl surrounding the future of Ben Simmons and Joe Embiid with the 76ers.

The 76ers were poised for a deeper playoff run than a second-round exit before being knocked out by the Atlanta Hawks. With the Hawks knocking them out though, many have shifted their focus to Ben Simmons, who had a dreadful series on the offensive end.

With that, online sportsbooks have odds listed for both Simmons and Embiid and where they’ll end up next season. Both of them are favored to remain in Philly, however, Simmons’ odds at online sportsbooks do not look as promising.

Reports have come out saying that the 76ers want to move forward with Ben Simmons in their plans. Simmons’ agent, Rich Paul, and 76ers president, Daryl Morey, met together to discuss his future and both sides agreed that Simmons will stay put for now.

However, if a trade offer is made, it is hard to believe that the 76ers won't listen.

Sitting with the second shortest odds are another team who have struggled in the playoffs recently, the Portland Trail Blazers. The Trail Blazers have only made it out of the first round of the playoffs once in their last eight playoff appearances looking to win the NBA Finals. With that, it is hard to think that Damian Lillard is happy with these results.
