Ben Simmons appears to have made up his mind about wanting to leave Philadelphia.
Earlier this week Simmons showed up to Sixers practice after the team forced his hand and threatened not to pay him if he decided to sit out. Unfortunately, Simmons got kicked out of practice after coach Doc Rivers felt he wasn’t probably engaging with other players in the practice.
Sixers coach Doc Rivers threw Ben Simmons out of practice today and the suspension came shortly thereafter, sources tell ESPN.

Sources: Doc Rivers asked Ben Simmons to join a defensive drill today. Simmons refused. Rivers asked again. Simmons said no again.
Rivers then told Simmons he should go home, and Simmons dropped the ball and left.

Hours after getting kicked out of practice, Simmons put up his primary $5 million New Jersey home for sale.

Simmons had already put up his $3 million Philadelphia condo up for sale earlier this month which isn’t a good sign for the Sixers who had hoped to mend fences with the disgruntled star.
