Ben Simmons tells Philadelphia 76ers he's not mentally ready to play, sources say

Ben Simmons told the Philadelphia 76ers that he is not mentally ready to play up to their expectations, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Sources told ESPN that Simmons met with coach Doc Rivers and the team’s medical professionals on Friday to update them on his status. Simmons also spoke with his teammates.

Simmons must be evaluated and the next steps will be based on the determination of medical professionals, the sources said.

Simmons, a three-time All-Star point guard who requested a trade four months ago, has been clear to Sixers officials and the rest of the NBA about his desire never to play for the franchise again. Philadelphia has wanted him in the lineup and playing while looking for a trade.
