Is Ben Simmons feeling pinch after first missed game (and soon game check)?

Article Summary:

The Sixers will deduct that money from the $8.25 million up-front payment that the team withheld from Simmons on Oct. 1, and Simmons can appeal that fine through arbitration.

Is Simmons feeling a pinch from realizing that money is gone? The 76ers hope so as they try to pressure him back onto the team.

The two sides remain at a stalemate – while teams are staying in touch with the 76ers, sources have told NBC Sports there has not been meaningful trade talk around Simmons in weeks – and are looking to up the pressure on the other side.

The sides remain dug in: 76ers GM Daryl Morey isn’t going to trade Simmons in a package that makes his team worse right now – Philly sees itself as a contender with Embiid at its core.
