The Philadelphia 76ers remain engaged with nine known teams on a trade for Ben Simmons in addition to a 10th "mystery" team that is unclear even to members of Rich Paul.
The Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Portland Trail Blazers, San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors are the nine known teams.
No team has come close to the asking price set by Daryl Morey and the 76ers as they seek a star on the level of Damian Lillard or Bradley Beal.
No conversations held by the 76ers have advanced beyond the very first stage.
The Cavalier sand Wolves have largely made pick-heavy overtures while Philadelphia has countered that they need them to bring specific All-Star caliber stars.
