Crybaby Ben Simmons is again blaming someone else for his complete meltdown with Sixers.

He believes the organization’s decision to build around Joel Embiid is not conducive to the way he wants to play, according to The Athletic‘s Sam Amick.

So despite both Doc Rivers and Daryl Morey saying yesterday at Media Day that they would like to have Simmons back with the franchise, Simmons still has a desire to be traded.

Simmons’s frustration with the team’s decision to build around Embiid and his playing style comes as the duo ranked No. 4 in net rating of pairs who had played at least 1,100 minutes together. Still, per The Athletic, Simmons’s desires to be move remain despite being presented with information from the club about the success of the pairing.

Embiid echoed a similar sentiment to Rivers and Morey on Monday, saying that he still hopes Simmons returns to Philadelphia.

“Of course we want him back, he’s a big piece of what we’ve been building the past few years,” Embiid said.

Embiid said on Monday that he was among the members of the organization who tried to see Simmons in California but was rebuffed by the All-Star guard.

Simmons has four years and $147 million remaining on his max contract.
