The Ben Simmons drama continues to unfold. Nothing really has changed for neither him nor the Philadelphia 76ers in the grand scheme of things. However, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Simmons has officially put all of his cards on the table.
ESPN Sources: Philadelphia 76ers All-Star Ben Simmons will not report for opening of training camp next week and intends to never play another game for the franchise. Simmons hasn’t spoken to team since a late August meeting when he communicated this message to Sixers officials.
