PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Is the relationship between Ben Simmons and the 76ers completely shattered? It’s no secret the Sixers are looking to deal the three-time all-star, but they know his worth and aren’t willing to trade him at a discounted price.

It was previously reported that Simmons cut off all communication with the organization and everything is going through his agent. Now, a new report claims Simmons is willing to sit out of training camp if he is not traded.

“Ben Simmons is not answering the phone calls, he don’t want to be with the 76ers, and from what I heard, he’s willing not to report to training camp, and will go as long as it takes for him to get out of Philly,” Perkins said.
