Article Summary:

Ben Simmons has arrived in Philadelphia after spending the bulk of training camp in Los Angeles, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Simmons asked to be traded earlier in the offseason after a tumultuous postseason loss to the Atlanta Hawks in which Simmons largely did not shoot in fourth quarters culminating in a bizarre decision to pass out of an open dunk in Philadelphia’s Game 7 loss. Simmons’ camp has continued to pressure Philadelphia to seek a trade, and the 76ers will continue looking for one, but they would reportedly prefer to convince him to remain in Philadelphia. Without a viable trade on the trade on the table, Simmons’ options were to sit out and sacrifice his paycheck or to return to the team and hope a trade can materialize later on.
