Ben Simmons will not report to the Philadelphia 76ers when training camp opens next week and intends to never play another game for the franchise.

Simmons hasn't spoken to the team since a meeting in late August when he communicated this message to officials.

Simmons is aware of possible sanctions available to the 76ers to suspend and fine him, but he is so far willing to carry out his plan.

The 76ers continue to seek a trade of Simmons, but have been unwilling to budge from their asking price.
