76ers’ Ben Simmons no longer wants to play alongside Joel Embiid due to big man’s playing style, per report

Article Summary:

Team president Daryl Morey said the team had “a lot of hope” that things would get smoothed over with Simmons. Franchise centerpiece Joel Embiid spoke fondly of Simmons, saying he and Simmons were closer last season than ever before. We saw just how much of a problem that became against the Hawks when Simmons turned away open jump shots, and even a crucial wide-open dunk in Game 7 against the Atlanta Hawks, the latter of which was pointed out by Embiid after the loss.

The fit between Embiid and Simmons has been a talking point for the last couple seasons, and it sounds like instead of continuing to run it back with the same results, Simmons would prefer to join a team better suited for his talents.
