Article Summary:

After tumbling out of the playoffs in the second round at the hands of the Atlanta Hawks, and an offseason where rumors swirled about trading Simmons, everything was leading up to Media Day where everyone from Daryl Morey, Doc Rivers and Joel Embiid would be asked questions again regarding Simmons’ status with the team. “

When asked to clarify what he’s disappointed in, Embiid said he’s disappointed in the Sixers not being able to realize their potential in the playoffs with their current core of guys, and where the current situation is with Simmons.

Tobias Harris echoed Embiid’s sentiment in being disappointed in how the situation got to where it is with Simmons and the Sixers, saying that, “We’ve tried to be there, and we are there, situation is what it is. “

It’s clear the players want Simmons back in the fold, because as Embiid mentioned, Philly was a dominant force last season as it finished with the top seed in the East.
