Ethe journey of Ben Simmons and Los Sixers has come to an end. The Philadelphia franchise, after another disappointing season, is not willing to let him out, but it will have to reconsider its position as the Australian forward’s decision is firm: He doesn’t want to stay on the team or under Doc Rivers’ orders not a minute more.
A decision his own teammates on the Sixers have seen firsthand and in the most unexpected way. Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris and Matisse Thybulle, the first swords, and much of the team were willing to travel to Los Angeles to try to convince the player for you to reconsider your position.
Simmons’ response was clear and blunt. Hours before the players got on the plane to head to California, the Australian point guard contacted them and told them to desist from their intentions, not to waste their time because he was not going to change his mind.
Simmons ‘departure seems like a fact, and that is clearly his agent, Rich Paul, to former player Jay Williams: “I spoke to Rich Paul, and Rich Paul was the one who told me:’ We want to go out. We want to go out. where we have to go to get out of there. We want to be anywhere but Philadelphia. “
