The relationship between Simmons and the team has never been smooth as Pompey reports:
From the start, the Sixers and Simmons never felt like a perfect fit.
“This entire situation is not about Ben Simmons and the fans of Philly,” a source said. “It’s not about Ben Simmons being able to overcome the loss to the Hawks. It’s not any of that, and they know that. What is this? This is the relationship running its course. It’s never been smooth at all.”
Pompey’s report includes that the source acknowledges that Simmons has to improve as a player.
A league source said the Timberwolves, Pacers, Cavaliers, Pistons, Raptors and Spurs are still inquiring about Ben Simmons’ availability.
