Ben Simmons committed to summer plan with Nets

Ben Simmons and his camp will sit down with the Nets and hammer out a plan for the ensuing months, one intended to put him on the best path to both physical and mental health and a successful return to the court.  “We will work together with the Nets on a summer plan,” a source close to Simmons told The Post. “Everyone is confident.”

Hypothetical: Nets balk at bringing back Kyrie. KD wants out but Portland can’t land him. However, Ben Simmons becomes available.
Would you trade a good player not named Lillard or Simons AND the 6th pick (assuming it remains there) for Ben Simmons?
Me: In a heartbeat. – 12:53 PM

Just wondering… where are all those armchair GMs who wanted the Trail Blazers to give up years worth of picks and players to obtain Ben Simmons or James Harden? – 9:48 AM

Both the Nets and 76ers needed Ben Simmons this postseason more than James Harden tbh – 11:05 PM

We now have a clear winner from the James Harden/Ben Simmons trade…the other 28 teams who weren’t involved – 10:57 PM

Hey, Philadelphia 76ers fan, how ya feeling about trashing on Ben Simmons now?
Good luck with paying Harden $250 million over the next 5 years or losing him and thus Simmons and other assets for nada. – 10:40 PM

Ben Simmons and James Harden attempting the same number of second half shots in Philly’s last two elimination games was the only way this could have ended. – 10:00 PM

Jason Dumas @JDumasReports
Sixers will have some tough questions to answer this off-season. Ousted by a player they chose Ben Simmons over. Acquired a co-star who appears to be sliding out of his prime. Not much roster flexibility due to contracts. Fanbase frustrated with coach. Morey has a full plate. – 9:17 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
2nd-half shots tonight (with 8:00 left) …
James Harden 1
Ben Simmons 0 – 9:15 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Sixers moved heaven and earth to acquire James Harden because Ben Simmons wouldn’t shoot the ball with the season on the line, only for Harden not to shoot the ball with the season on the line…cold world, man – 8:51 PM

More on this storyline

The Nets want the rehabbing Simmons to be in Brooklyn as much as possible, putting Philadelphia as far in the review mirror as he can. The 25-year-old finally is offloading his South Jersey mansion, which can only help toward that end, one small step.  Simmons — who forced a trade from the 76ers to the Nets on Feb. 10, but didn’t play at all this past season — sold his suburban mansion in Moorestown, N.J., for $4.55 million, and has his condo in the Ritz Carlton Residences in downtown Philadelphia on the market as well. Both listings were reported by The Dirt. -via New York Post / May 15, 2022
