The Sixers are playing hardball with crybaby Ben Simmons, withholding $8.25 million of his salary and fining him for missing exos while he holds out trying to force a trade.
And his agents at Klutch Sports must finally be realizing that they have brought a knife to a gun fight.
They’re getting desperate.
Which is why the overrated and overpaid Simmons has been forced to sell his condo in Philly
Kyle Neubeck reports that Klutch has reached out to the NBPA to get some help, Via PhillyVoice:
“After being fined for missing Philadelphia’s preseason loss to the Toronto Raptors on Monday night — a penalty of roughly $360,000 — Simmons’ representation had another discussion with the players association in which it was reiterated they would be unable to recoup the money being deducted from the $8.25 million sitting in escrow, sources say, and it was communicated to the Sixers that these early fines were perhaps higher than they expected.”
