Ben Simmons is due 25 percent of his 21-22 salary on Friday, which approximately $8.25 million.

Whether or not the Philadelphia 76ers decide to pay him that amount as Simmons continues his holdout, a source tells Marc Stein of Substack that his camp believes he'll ultimately get the money either after a trade or a separate resolution.

Simmons has already been fined by the 76ers for not reporting to camp.
