The Philadelphia 76ers’ Ben Simmons won’t report to training camp next week, according to media reports Tuesday, with ESPN citing sources as saying the 25-year-old forward intends to never play a game for the 76ers again.

Simmons wants to be traded and the 76ers have discussed trades with other teams. But, according to ESPN, they were disappointed in the offers and decided to keep him for now, hoping he’d start the season and improve his trade value.

Simmons faces fines and potential withholding of his salary if he won’t play.
