Morey's made it pretty clear that he's content to wait. He'll gamble for a deal with upside, but the Sixers are in a win-now position, so unless Morey thinks he's getting a combination of win-now pieces and picks, he'll just sit on Simmons.

Since he's asking for a lot, and other GMs think Morey is desperate to trade Simmons, they're not gonna meet Morey's asking price... but I think some team will bend before Morey breaks. Morey just doesn't really have an incentive to deal Simmons for less than value, especially because, if this deal is fucked and the Sixers dip in quality, then Embiid will be pissed. I'm sure Embiid is on board with Morey for the "wait til you can get a fair return" plan.

So he'll fine Simmons nearly a mil and a half for not reporting to camp, and he'll keep fining Simmons as much as he can. And he'll wait.
