CAMDEN N.J. – Doc Rivers has to know whether Ben Simmons is reporting to the Sixers to play.
You’d have to imagine Rivers knows whether Simmons plans to put on a Sixers jersey again. “I’m assuming he’s going to play, but who knows. I don’t know. I can’t get in anyone’s head. Those are questions I can’t answer.”
One would think that Simmons meeting with his head coach for the first time since the 25-year-old requested a trade back in August would provide some clarity.
If Rivers knows the answer, he wasn’t ready to let us know.
