Josh Harris Rumors
Six weeks ago, a Sixers contingent including Doc Rivers, executives Daryl Morey and Elton Brand, and owner Josh Harris flew to Los Angeles hoping to convince Ben Simmons to return to Philadelphia for training camp, or at least gain clarity on why he wants out. But sources with knowledge of the meeting say Simmons, who was accompanied by his agent, Rich Paul, gave no clear reason for why he demanded to be traded earlier in the offseason.
Ben Simmons let it be known that he wants out. In a meeting with the 76ers last week in Los Angeles, Simmons told team co-managing partner Josh Harris, president of basketball operations Daryl Morey, general manager Elton Brand and coach Doc Rivers that he no longer wants to remain a Sixer, according to multiple sources.

Tom Moore: #Sixers Daryl Morey: ‘The goal is not to shoot 3-pointers – the goal is to win. You can score on offense a lot of different ways.’ Says if he had Shaq he would’ve given him the ball ‘about 100 times’ and laughs, and Embiid is a high-level low-post scorer.
Brian Seltzer: Josh Harris on Daryl Morey: “Talent like Daryl rarely becomes available…He has an extraordinary track record of success in this league as an innovator, visionary and leader. I believe he significantly improves our chances of delivering a championship caliber team to our fans.”
