Ben Simmons is a great player, despite his mishaps in the Philadelphia 76ers' most recent playoff run. He has certainly played well enough in the past to earn himself a max-level rookie extension.
He is currently embroiled in a tug of war against the Philadelphia 76ers due to him wanting out of the franchise. However, Simmons' trade value dipped, and it seems as though the Philadelphia 76ers haven't yet found any trades that have piqued their interest. There have been prior reports that suggested that Ben Simmons might not show up to training camp if he isn't traded.
If Ben Simmons does end up sitting out, it might cost him a lot of money. A recent report by Darrelle Lincoln relayed the words of ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst, who stated that the 76ers could fine Ben Simmons $227,000 for every day that he doesn't show up.
