Article Summary:

The Sixers tried to trade Simmons in the past to the Houston Rockets for James Harden before he was dealt to the Brooklyn Nets. After another underwhelming postseason run, the Sixers have been taking more trade calls on Simmons as they look to upgrade the position.

Per Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Simmons has told the team that he wants out:

In a meeting with the 76ers last week in Los Angeles, Simmons told team co-managing partner Josh Harris, president of basketball operations Daryl Morey, general manager Elton Brand and coach Doc Rivers that he no longer wants to remain a Sixer, according to multiple sources.

The Sixers can, of course, decide to fine Simmons if he does not show up to camp, but that does not matter to Simmons.
