Here’s some of the juicy info from Pompey:

“Ben Simmons let it be known that he wants out.

“In a meeting with the 76ers last week in Los Angeles, Simmons told team co-managing partner Josh Harris, president of basketball operations Daryl Morey, general manager Elton Brand and coach Doc Rivers that he no longer wants to remain a Sixer, according to multiple sources.

“Sources said the three-time All-Star also does not intend to report to training camp.

The trade already would have been done, but the Sixers are reportedly asking for a King’s ransom for their All-Star Guard.

“Another source said there’s no shortage of teams still interested, but the problem is Morey is demanding a king’s ransom.

“Simmons is fully aware the Sixers can fine him for holding out and failing to show up to training camp. But a source said money will not play a role in the decision-making for Simmons, who has four years and $147 million remaining on his deal.

Time for both parties to move on.

Simmons might not have a jumper, but he’s still a solid player in the league.
