The Philadelphia 76ers continue to sink to the bottom seed in the Eastern Conference, as their no. 1 pick Ben Simmons needs more time for recovery. The latest NBA trade rumors reported that the 76ers are scouting for Nate Robinson, Farmar, and Ferrell Trade.

NBA Latest Trade Rumors: Philadelphia 76ers And Nate Robinson

Adrian Wojnarowski added the Philadelphia 76ers interest in NBA veteran guard Nate Robinson on twitter. Robinson has played over 10 seasons in th,e NBA while averaging 11 points and three assists per game.

According to Fansided, Robinson played in just two games with the Pelicans during the 2015-16 season, and he would be playing a big role with the Sixers, as he has 10 years of NBA knowledge and experience. Robinson has a decent outside shot, but takes a fairly balanced variety of shots, and he knows when to penetrate in the lane and open space to drive to the basket, and when to pass.

NBA Latest Trade Rumors: Farmar and Ferrell Trade

Keith Pompey added on twitter that the Philadelphia 76ers are looking for Jordan Farmar and Yogi Ferrell to possibly add to their roster. Ferrell is out of Indiana and playing D-League ball with the Long Island Nets where he's averaging 19.3 points and 5.5 assists in 23 games this season.

Farmar has played over 9 seasons in the NBA while averaging 7.7 points per game. He spent a majority of his time with the Lakers, playing five seasons in LA. And Farmar has played only two games this season with the Kings.

Ben Simmons Is The Only Hope For Philadelphia

All we all know, Ben Simmons broke his foot during practice, requiring him to sit for 3 months to open the season, as he recovers from injury. However, according to ESPN Sports News, Simmons himself told  reporters that the plan was to be back to game action at some point in February.

Fansided reported that when Ben Simmons does return to the lineup, there will be changes in the way the 76ers play, as Simmons will be the primary ball handler. Simmons is an elite passer and with his size he can see over just about any player, whether he's throwing a pinpoint outlet pass down the court, or creating on his own.

In his one year at LSU, Simmons averaged 19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 4.8 assists, which were all Conference highs in the SEC. Simmons also accounted for 26 percent of LSU's total team offense.
