"Philadelphia has offered a five-year, $168M maximum contract extension to Ben Simmons and the Sixers and agent Rich Paul are expected to work through the details toward an eventual agreement, league sources tell ESPN", Wojnarowski reports.
The organization offered Simmons a massive contract after he finished his third contractual season with the team after sitting out his rookie year in 2016-17 with a foot injury.
Simmons will earn about 8.1 million dollars this season, the last of his four-year rookie deal.
Philadelphia is 101-58 in regular-season games when Simmons plays. Assuming the sides agree on what will be a full max, Simmons' salary for the following season would jump to about 29.3 million dollars and eventually rise to almost 39 million dollars in 2024-25.

Simmons was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft and wound up making his National Basketball Association debut in the 2017-18 season, earning Rookie of the Year honors. He averaged 16.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 1.4 steals per game last season as the Sixers reached the Eastern Conference semifinals before being eliminated by the eventual National Basketball Association champion Raptors.
The team was unable to retain All-Star swingman Jimmy Butler, who is joining the Miami Heat, and sharpshooter JJ Redick, who moved to the New Orleans Pelicans.
It also comes as Simmons is reluctant to shoot the ball from distance, which goes against the modern National Basketball Association where three-point shooting from point guards through to centres has become crucial. Regardless, it's safe to say that the 76ers will be a powerhouse for years to come. His teammates, including All-Star center Joel Embiid (five years, $150 million), Tobias Harris (five years, $180 million) and Al Horford (four years, $109 million) have been secured with long-term deals.
