Kyle Neubeck: On broadcast just now, @KristenLedlow just said feedback from people she talked to within Sixers is split on Simmons approach. One, she said, believes they should welcome him back and he makes them better. “Another tells me, ‘We got to cut the cord and move forward.’”

More on this storyline

A sports fan who phoned into a Philadelphia radio station was so focused on complaining about estranged 76ers star Ben Simmons that he shrugged off getting hit by a car while on the air. (Hear the audio below.) “James” was patched through when he was asked, “What’s on your mind?” “Uh, nothing, someone just hit my car,” he replied. The incredulous Angelo Cataldi and the Morning Team on 94WIP wanted confirmation that the caller had been in an accident. “Yeah, and they’re driving off,” James said. “It’s OK.” The hosts encouraged James to get a license plate number while James let them know the other driver “swerved into my lane.” “Anyway, I’m calling about Ben Simmons,” he said, unperturbed. “You just got in a car accident and you’re calling about Ben Simmons?” “Yeah,” James replied, “because he annoys me more than someone hitting my car and driving off.” -via HuffPost / November 17, 2021

The tense situation between All-Star Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers has continued, with the team fining Simmons for not traveling with the team on its current road trip, sources told The Athletic. Simmons has not played this season, citing not being mentally ready to compete after spending the offseason hoping to be traded. -via The Athletic / November 16, 2021

Sixers officials told The Athletic that the team had yet to receive any information from its team therapist or Simmons’ personal specialists that would preclude him from playing or practicing. -via The Athletic / November 16, 2021
