In the latest chapter of “As the Simmons turns”….or maybe its “Days of our Ben”….anyway, doesnt matter, Ben Simmons might actually be coming BACK to Philly! This according to the Athletic’s Shams Charania.
The Philadelphia 76ers and Ben Simmons’ agent, Klutch Sports CEO Rich Paul, have been working around the clock over the last few days on a resolution to have the three-time All-Star return to market, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) October 11, 2021
In a tweet put out Monday, and “confirmed” (ill call it that when the two have virtually identical tweets) by Adrian Wojnarowski, Charnia stated that Rich Paul and the Sixers were working on an arrangement to have Simmons return to the team. BUT this doesnt mean all is forgiven. Simmons returning would be nothing more in an attempt to rebuild his trade value, thus making it easier to facilitate a deal. The same thing played out a year ago in Houston with James Harden, albeit way less hostile.
So in a nut shell. He might come back….but he might not. For REAL breaking news just keep it on the Fanatic!

Sources are telling ME that Ben Simmons has 2 options. Stay home and continue to be fined OR come to work. My source says “he’s weighing both options.” #Insider pic.twitter.com/UpJG3PuUwF
