Michele Roberts, executive-director of the National Basketball Players Association called out 76ers president Daryl Morey for his handling of the Ben Simmons situation.
Roberts reiterated her disgust with what’s going down in Philadelphia in regards to trading Ben Simmons, and seemingly implied the 76ers didn’t keep a promise to trade Ben Simmons.
Roberts on SiriusXM NBA Radio, via Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer:
“Look, none of us is privy to every detail,” Roberts said. “… This is not an issue that emerged at the start of the season. There has been an issue with this player and that team for a while. Rumor has it promises were made about being able to move the player and obviously those promises either weren’t kept or couldn’t be kept. Who knows?
