Springer signed his rookie-scale deal back in early August making him a full-time member of the squad.
Per HoopsHype, here is how his salary is allocated on an annual basis:
Per 40 minutes in one season with the Volunteers, Springer averaged 19.3 points per game, 1.9 steals, 0.7 blocks, 5.4 boards, 4.5 dimes, 43.5 percent from 3, and 81 percent from the free-throw line.
If Ben Simmons remains with the Sixers and plays that likely blocks many of Springer’s minutes. The team would need more reliable shooters to play around Simmons, and despite Springer’s efficiency from beyond the arc, he often passed up open 3s to take contested 2s. He may not be quite ready for a full-time spot-up shooting role.
Finally, a scenario where Simmons is traded and Springer stays represents another path where he gets at least limited opportunity; but it would probably depend on who the team landed in return.
