EHe, who is already one of the soap operas of the summer, is still far from being solved. The relationship between Ben Simmons and the Sixers seems irreconcilable. And much more after the Australian player has communicated to the team his intention not to continue in the City of Brotherly Love.
At a meeting in Los Angeles last week, Simmons made it clear to franchise managing partner Josh Harris to the president of operations Daryl Morey, General Manager Elton Brand and Coach Doc Rivers who does not want to remain a ‘sixer’.
According to the same sources that speak of that summit meeting in LA, The point guard also threatened his bosses not to show up for the team’s training camp at the end of September., forcing the franchise to a solution via transfer.
A threat that can be very expensive for the player, who could lose up to $ 227,000 for every day he is absent from the preseason training camp. “He could lose up to $ 1.3 million, although the player is prepared for it.”, said journalist Brian Windhorst, of ESPN.
