76ers’ Ben Simmons willing to forfeit salary and sit out entire season if not traded, per report

Article Summary:

Simmons has asked the Sixers for a trade, and he doesn’t plan to report to the team until his wish is granted. In the meantime, the Sixers could withhold Simmons’ salary, and all indications are that they plan to do just that.

Simmons, who is under contract with the Sixers for the next four seasons, is owed more than $33 million for the upcoming campaign, and it’s tough to believe that Simmons – or anyone – would be willing to forfeit a large portion of that much money just to prove a point. Despite Simmons’ stance, the Sixers expressed hope that he would ultimately return to the team at media day.
