More on this storyline

There was a Ben Simmons sighting Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center. The disgruntled point guard was on hand for the 76ers’ film study before his teammates faced the Toronto Raptors. “I honestly didn’t know, but he was,” coach Doc Rivers said before the game. “He was in the back, but I didn’t see him.” -via The Philadelphia Inquirer / November 12, 2021
However, the team sent Simmons a schedule for Thursday, which included its game against the Raptors, according to the report. The player believed it was an effort to withhold his $360,000 game check. Sources said he left the building hours before the game started. The Sixers have said they’ve been supportive of Simmons and worked to provide any possible resource. -via The Philadelphia Inquirer / November 12, 2021
