The financial ramifications of holding out has begun to take hold in the camp of Ben Simmons, a source tells the Philly Voice.
Simmons will lose approximately $360,000 for every regular season and preseason game Simmons misses.
Simmons has the right to seek arbitration for 30 days and can move for accelerated arbitration after the loss of the hefty game check. Few believe that will be a successful route for Simmons.
The Sixers have had formal and informal discussions with Simmons’ camp recently, which sources familiar with the situation characterize as scattered in message based on the day and the person speaking.
