Ben Simmons and ‘Philly’ have almost certainly ended ties. The duo are most definitely at a crossroads, and the player wishes not to return to a place he once called home. While many within the team management insist that Simmons has a future with them, the latter is adamant on finding a new franchise for himself.

After being left despondent from a season of lows, Simmons was reportedly unhappy with the way he was treated at Philadelphia. This has seen him find the exit doors in the off-season.

In his four seasons with the team, Simmons averaged almost 16 points and over 8 rebounds per game. However, the season gone by was not the best of his campaigns, as he amassed only 14.3 points. In addition, his defensive contributions weren’t the best either. This meant that for long spells, the 25-year-old found himself warming the bench. Thus, he decided that he will not return to the 76ers training, and wants to split ways.
