Danny Green said that what he’s most excited for this year is the opportunity to finally learn all about what Philly has to offer after the COVID-19 pandemic all but prevented any such opportunities last season. “The biggest thing that I’m looking forward to is being out in the community,” Green told Beck. “Learning Philly. Obviously the history and museums, the people. But doing Christmas and Thanksgiving drives, those kinds of things. Having our fans [at the Wells Fargo Center] for the whole year, not just the end of the year.”
BECK: How closely are you paying attention to [the Simmons talks]? I assume this is at least some subject of conversation as you and your teammates are texting each other in the summer. “GREEN: Yes. I’ve texted here and there. Mostly we just wish each other happy birthday, enjoy the offseason, or if we’re in the same city we chop it up some. But I was just working out with one of our coaches here, and we were just talking about what’s going on with what he’s heard, what we’ve heard. We don’t hear from the higher-ups, we don’t get that intel, or they don’t consult with us before they make moves. We’re hearing who we might get, who we might lose, and we’re all very interested and paying very close attention to it.
Storyline: Ben Simmons Trade?
Veteran Danny Green joined Howard Beck on “The Crossover” podcast and he explained how much he and the Sixers would miss Simmons: “It’s tough to say, man because we don’t know what we’re gonna get back for him. We may get a point guard. We may get wings. That might change a lot. I might be playing with a different type of point guard. I might be playing with different type of wings. I might be coming off the bench. I don’t know who we’re going to get and also, defensively, I probably become the primary defender. Not that it’s an issue or a problem for me, but we have one less wing defender with him. Now it’s me and Matisse (Thybulle), not saying the other guys don’t play defense, but you talk about our main defenders, Ben was a big part of that and a part of our defense.
