Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons reportedly will not be at training camp when it opens next week.

Additionally, the three-time All-Star reportedly intends to “never play another game for the franchise.”

This doesn’t come as a huge surprise, as it was rumored that Simmons was planning on skipping training camp. However, it sounds like his decision is official now.

It will be worth monitoring whether or not the Sixers punish Simmons for skipping. It seems like there is a real chance that he will be on the roster when the season starts.

The belief is that the 76ers’ asking price for Simmons has been extremely high throughout the offseason. It was recently reported that the team isn’t willing to make a deal that would drop it back in the standings.

Time will tell how the saga unfolds.
