It seems Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers will be forced to part ways before the start of the training camp in late September.

According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Simmons told the Sixers he no longer wants to be part of the team and wants to be traded.

Simmons met with Sixers management and head coach Doc Rivers, making it clear that he has no plan to attend the training camp in late September.

The versatile guard still has four years and $147M remaining on his current deal with Philadelphia.
