Simmons laughs off question about his Sixers holdout when compared to Harden's

You can't fault the reporter for trying to get a reaction but Ben Simmons wasn't taking the bait. 

When asked by the media at HSS Training Center about how he spent his 2021 Sixers Media Day, a time during which he was away from the team, Simmons offered the run of the mill, "no comment," followed by a wry smile. 

The question, of course, pertained to James Harden's acrimonious relationship with Philadelphia and specifically general manager Daryl Morey.

Despite Harden claiming that he'd never play for a team where Morey is employed, the point guard has since reported to training camp, with many NBA insiders surmising that he'll make it as uncomfortable as he can for the Sixers.

With Harden trying to force the 76ers hand for a trade, Simmons is trying to get on the court and healthy for his first time since being traded to the Nets. 

While some Nets fans maintain optimism that Simmons will regain his All-Star form, neither Brooklyn nor Philadelphia can be overly pleased with their end of things at this point in time.
