Marc Stein: The expectation remains, one week out from 76ers media day, that Ben Simmons will choose not to report to the team’s training camp, league sources say. But the Sixers, sources say, remain intent on trying to convince Simmons to report. More NBA from me at marcstein.substack.com

For those wondering, Ben Simmons and Tyrese Maxey from #Sixers to #Rockets for John Wall works cap-wise. – 4:49 PM

If the Sixers really do want John Wall, I’m not sure why they’d have to give up Ben Simmons to get him. – 11:42 AM

In normal years, I like to project the Sixers rotation after the first week of free agency.
As the Ben Simmons saga is still ongoing, I finally got around to sizing up the roster… with some obvious contingencies: theathletic.com/2833685/2021/0…9:33 AM

More on this storyline

Brian Windhorst: On opening night I think he’s gonna be in Los Angeles filming jump shot videos. He may be on the roster but I don’t think he’s gonna be there. (…) I don’t think Ben Simmons plays another game in a Sixers uniform. -via YouTube / September 19, 2021
Morey will be in a similar position to Thibs in that rival executives will try to back him into a corner and wait for things to get really uncomfortable with Simmons, thereby driving down the asking price. But Morey is much more experienced in front office work than was Thibodeau, a coach to his core who had not yet started his third season as the lead decision-maker. Those around the league believe that if there is any executive able to stomach the circus that is sure to descend upon Philly, to block out the noise that comes with this kind of drama, it’s Morey. -via The Athletic / September 18, 2021
