Article Summary:

The Ben Simmons holdout presumably came to an end last night, with the former first overall pick showing up unexpectedly at the Wells Fargo Center as if he had just been a little late to join the team due to car trouble. Surround Embiid with four willing shooters like we saw against Brooklyn and let the good times roll, free of the Ben Simmons baggage. What if the struggles aren’t in the past? What if we’re looking at some version of the yips? Not only would Simmons’ dip in performance against Atlanta be on his resume, but it could suddenly become his status quo, with not even the idea of Ben Simmons, premium regular season floor raiser, in opposing executives’ minds. So where do you fall? Do you want Ben to take the court, play through the awkwardness and boos and maybe help the Sixers win some additional games while improving his trade value? Or do you want him to hop on a flight back to California, let the younger guys get extended run, and just wait for some team to fall into a hole in the standings and decide the risk is worth the potential reward in a trade? Let us know below.
