Ben Simmons returns to Philadelphia

429

Veteran forward Ben Simmons is finally joining the Philadelphia 76ers ahead of the 2021-2022 NBA Season.

In a report by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the many-time NBA All-Star has arrived in Philadelphia on Monday night (Tuesday in the Philippines) and took a Covid-19 test as required by NBA protocol.

Wojnarowski also said that the Sixers management wants him back on the court once he clears protocols, but that remains to be seen.

“Sixers are hopeful to start moving toward the next steps of a return with Simmons,” Wojnarowski reported.

This was a welcome development for the Sixers after Simmons said before that he does not want to play for the team anymore and will not attend the training camp.
