Ben Simmons Reportedly Giving Sixers Silent Treatment, Plans To Leave Team

Ben Simmons‘ time in Philadelphia appears to be all but over — the NBA star will reportedly bail on Sixers training camp next week … and has given the team the cold shoulder for more than a month.

The 25-year-old has been rumored to want out of the City of Brotherly Love this offseason … and according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Simmons appears to be standing his ground.

Woj also says Simmons is fully prepared to be fined or suspended until he is shipped off to a new team.

If it is, in fact, the last time the guard plays for Philly, his last appearance will leave a bad taste in fans’ mouths — he averaged 9.9 points a game in the Eastern Conference semi-finals against the Atlanta Hawks this past postseason.

Despite the offensive struggles, NBA/BIG 3 star Joe Johnson told us last week BS’ jump shot is NOT broken … and said it’s a confidence issue more than anything.

Jumper or not, Ben’s relationship with the Sixers is seemingly beyond repair … and it’ll be interesting to see if any team takes a chance on him.
