Article Summary:

Philadelphia 76ers All-Star center Joel Embiid responded to a report on Thursday that Ben Simmons no longer wanted to play alongside him due to his playing style. Simmons has requested a trade away from Philadelphia and he plans to stay away from the Sixers until his wish is granted.

While Embiid noted that he still thinks the Sixers are better off with the Defensive Player of the Year runner-up on the court, he also pushed back against the idea that Simmons’ unhappiness with his role in Philadelphia is somehow his fault. Even if Simmons ultimately re-joins the team for financial reasons, a trade is all but inevitable.
