76ers president Daryl Morey on Ben Simmons: ‘I believe him’

NBC Sports


Article Summary:

Did Ben Simmons miss all his 76ers games this season, as he claimed, due to mental-health issues? Or was he just holding out to induce a trade?

Philadelphia’s judgment seemed apparent, as the team reportedly fined him more than $19 million before dealing him to the Nets.

But 76ers president Daryl Morey said he believes Simmons.

However, Simmons – after resistance – met with a 76ers-recommended mental-health specialist in November.

Morey said last season he wouldn’t trade Simmons then offered Simmons to the Rockets for James Harden in January 2021.

Throughout the standoff with Simmons, Morey sometimes seemed to antagonize Simmons.
