Three-time All-Star Ben Simmons is not budging; the Philadelphia 76ers news drama will not end anytime soon. According to sources, the 25-year-old is willing to sacrifice $33 million if the team fails to trade him before the start of the season. Simmons will earn $31.590 million in the upcoming 2021-22 NBA season.
Of course, that figure is not the grand total. His cap figure is actually $33,003,936. Plus, his guaranteed cash remaining with Philadelphia is $146,684,160. On Jul. 16, 2019, the point guard signed a five-year, $169.65 million contract with the organization. Daryl Morey, the team’s president of basketball operations, is demanding four first-round draft picks for his guard.
