Embiid welcomes Simmons with open arms


After a holdout that began in the opening of training camp and the first week-plus of preseason play, Ben Simmons finally returned to Philadelphia to rejoin the 76ers.

Sixers star Joel Embiid reacted to Simmons’ return after the latter said that he doesn’t want to play with the team anymore.

“I think there’s going to be some adjustments, but it doesn’t need to be awkward,” Embiid said after their recent victory against the Brooklyn Nets.

Embiid reiterated that the Sixers are better when the All-Star guard is on the floor.

“We’re all professionals. We want to win. He gives me the best chance to win… We’re going to be fine,” he said.
