Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons has made it clear that he does not intend to show up for training camp as well as never playing another game for the organization as he waits for his trade request to be fulfilled.

The relationship between Simmons and the team has been severely fractured and it is at a point of no return at this moment. The best thing the Sixers can do now is to try and get the most value they can get in return for one of the game’s brightest, yet maddening, stars.

One option that has popped up has been Houston Rockets guard John Wall who has been made available by the franchise as they continue with their rebuild and focusing on younger players. While the Sixers trading for Wall at this point in time would be a bit of a questionable move given his contract and injury history, it is intriguing to think of a Wall-Joel Embiid pairing at times.

ESPN’s Kendrick Perkins has recently said that Wall is a better fit for the Sixers than Simmons is and it appears that Simmons caught wind of it. He posted on his Instagram story that he is actually working out with Wall at the moment.

Is it a troll? That is up to Sixers fans to decide, but it is clear that the embattled star is frustrated with the organization and it will be interesting to see what happens next in this soap opera.
