The trade saga involving Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers could be coming to an end soon. While the 76ers have told teams they are comfortable keeping Simmons on the roster heading into the 2021-22 NBA season, rival executives around the league aren’t buying it.
Last month, reports indicated that Ben Simmons had told the Philadelphia 76ers he wants to be traded and is willing to hold out of training camp to make it happen.

Ben Simmons has decided he wants to move on from the Philadelphia 76ers and find a new place to play in the upcoming season. Simmons is only 25 and is already a two-time All-Star, checking a number of boxes as a player thanks to his playmaking and elite defense.

Kevin Love is a veteran that has been a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers for the last few years, being a veteran on a roster that is currently going through a rebuild.

On Friday’s episode of “The Hoop Collective” podcast, host and ESPN insider Brian Windhorst pointed out the hefty fines that Philadelphia 76er Ben Simmons could be facing. As a part of his formal trade demand, Simmons recently informed the team that he will not be reporting to training camp. As this would be a violation of Simmons’ contract, Windhorst (who was told by former front office executive Bobby Marks) says Simmons can face a fine of $227,000 for every work day that he doesn’t show up to the Sixers’ camp.
