Ben Simmons has been ready to leave Philadelphia ever since his head coach and teammate basically turned on him in the media following a lackluster effort in the playoffs against the Atlanta Hawks.
He refused to show up for Sixers training camp, him not participating in practice, and him listing his Center City apartment for sale.
Simmons has now taken it to the next level as he is now attempting to sell his primary residence. His Moorestown home hit real estate website Zillow in the late hours of Tuesday night, just hours after Simmons was kicked out of Sixers practice by head coach Doc Rivers for refusing to engage in a defensive drill.
The home comes with a gated entrance, five bedrooms, six bathrooms, an appointed chef’s kitchen, a basement-level gaming room and entertainment space.
Simmons will be fined $330,000 for missing Wednesday’s game, which will bring his fines for missed games including the preseason to more than $1.7 million.
“I don’t like any player losing money. There’s so many things about this that I don’t like,” Rivers said. “But that still doesn’t mean you don’t have to do your job.”
