Simmons reports to 76ers


Sources told ESPN that 76ers All-Star Ben Simmons reported to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelph­ia on Monday night. The disgruntle­d guard was not expected to show up until later in the week.

As the Sixers neared the tip of a 115104 preseason victory over the Brooklyn Nets, Simmons entered the arena to take a COVID-19 test and start the process of returning to a team from which he has requested a trade, sources said.

The Sixers are desperate to restart communicat­ion with the three-time AllStar who hasn't had a direct conversati­on with the front office since an August meeting in which he reiterated his desire for a trade.
