But, in a weird twist of fate, there is another surprise player who is apparently a big winner of the Ben Simmons holdout situation; one who doesn’t even play in the backcourt.
The Philadelphia 76ers had a very interesting idea to utilize Ben Simmons.
When asked about how he planned to use Ben Simmons if he miraculously shows up to the Philadelphia 76ers’ training facility any time soon, Doc Rivers left little to the imagination.
Per Kevin O’Conner of The Ringer,
Embiid and Simmons would stagger minutes more often, and when Embiid came off the floor, Simmons would play the 5, sharing the frontcourt with Tobias Harris and new addition Georges Niang.
