Throughout the offseason, it’s been reported that Ben Simmons will not return to the Philadelphia 76ers. The All-star guard made it clear that he wanted a trade to another team. Moreover, Simmons refused to report to training camp, costing himself millions of dollars in fines. For awhile, it seemed as if Simmons’s tenure in Philadelphia was over. The turmoil and drama had seemingly reached a point where there was no coming back. Furthermore, 76ers superstar Joel Embiid even went on to call out the all-star guard, stating he was “disrespectful” and refuting his claims. Even after all of the drama, recent reports claim that Simmons may be making his way back to the 76ers.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, there has been momentum on a deal that would bring the all-star back to the 76ers. In addition, negotiations were going on with Simmons’s agent Rich Paul and coach Doc Rivers over the weekend, with significant progress made. Furthermore, Wojnarowski goes on to claim, “He has become more open to the possibility of ending his time away from the team and reporting to Philadelphia, sources said…” Even though Simmons may report back to the 76ers, he still has no desire to play a game according to Keith Pompey. The All-star seems to be trying to avoid any extra fines and punishments for missing games and training camp. Regardless of the breaking news, Simmons’s intentions remain the same. The star wants out of Philadelphia, but he’s willing to comply with the team. We’ll wait and see how this whole situation turns out.
