    Simmons also doesn’t plan on reporting to training camp leading up to the 2021-22 NBA season, the report stated. The Sixers could fine the former LSU product if he decides to hold out, but the newspaper reported that “money will not play a role” in his decision.

    The Athletic reported on Monday that team executives across the league came to the realization that Simmons would be traded away from the Sixers this offseason. The Golden State Warriors, Minnesota Timberwolves and Portland Trail Blazers were among some of the teams that were mentioned in the Simmons sweepstakes.
