Joel Embiid believes Ben Simmons situation can be fixed

A NBA team parting ways with its president of basketball operations a week before training camp would be remarkable in any circumstances, but the Minnesota Timberwolves’ decision to move on from president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas was even more notable for one simple reason; they forgot how to spell their own franchise name. In both a statement (which was quoted verbatim by several reporters, including the spelling mistake) and a release, they called themselves the “Timberwovles”:
