A person with direct knowledge of Ben Simmons' plans tells The Associated Press the All-Star guard won't report to training camp next week. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because discussions of Simmons’ plans with the franchise have been private. The 25-year-old guard from Australia was the No. 1 pick of the 2016 draft. He is a three-time All-Star and had been paired with Joel Embiid as the franchise cornerstones as the Sixers chase their first NBA championship since 1983. But Simmons took the brunt of the blame for the top-seeded Sixers’ second-round exit in last season’s playoffs.

The Philadelphia Flyers released the season schedule for the 2021-22 campaign.

Domantas Sabonis had his ninth triple-double of the season and Caris LeVert added 24 points to help Indiana rally past Philadelphia 103-94 on Tuesday night, ending the 76ers’ eight-game winning streak.

Tobias Harris scored 21 points, Seth Curry added 20 and the Philadelphia 76ers won their fifth straight game, beating the Chicago Bulls 106-94 on Monday night.

Allison had a strong showing in eight games with the Phantoms earlier this season before getting called up.

Danny Green hit eight 3-pointers and scored 28 points against his former team, and the Philadelphia 76ers weathered Los Angeles’ late rally for their fourth straight victory, 109-101 over the slumping Lakers on Thursday night.
