“Another tells me, ‘We got to cut the cord and move forward.'”

– Kyle Neubeck November 17, 2021

Until now, the company line in regards to Simmons has been that they will look around for a trade, but if nothing appears available in line with his value as a three-time All-Star and Defensive Player of the Year runner-up, then the organization wants him on the court playing for the team. Plus, Doc is the one who had to throw Simmons out of a practice and is tasked with the awkwardness of a player who clearly doesn’t want to be there running through drills or standing in the back of a film session. Are not pleased that when he’s not being fined, Ben is getting paid big bucks by the organization to mostly be a Call of Duty player. While they’re willing to dip into the luxury tax to put a competitive team on the floor, I would imagine they’re more inclined to do so for players actually wanting to play for the franchise, rather than Simmo the Savage.
