Ben Simmons has missed an entire year of basketball, first due to his trade request and refusal to play for the 76ers, and then, after joining the Nets, due to back issues.

Despite all of what has happened, the 25-year-old point guard appears to be committed to his new team and intends to work with the team on a summer plan which would help him fully recover and prepare for the next season.

Ben Simmons and his camp will sit down with the Nets and hammer out a plan for the ensuing months, one intended to put him on the best path to both physical and mental health and a successful return to the court. “We will work together with the Nets on a summer plan,” a source close to Simmons told The Post. “Everyone is confident.”
