Goorjian’s comments come after Aussie basketball icon Andrew Bogut weighed in on the “ugly” stand-off between Simmons and the 76ers. “It’s not good for either party, in my opinion. Ben’s side of things, training with your phone in your pocket, not being glued in to what’s going on,” Bogut told SEN on Wednesday. “Unfortunately, he has form doing these kinds of things; we experienced it with the national team. “There’s not going to be too much sympathy for him, but hopefully they can sort it out and both parties can have something positive to come out of it.”

Loud “We want Simmons!” chants as the Sixers perimeter defense is getting lit up. I would stick to the “Where’s Ben Simmons?” chants if we’re trying to make sense here. – 9:28 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Worth noting for tonight’s game: No Ben Simmons and no Shake Milton leaves one player that you would be comfortable labeling a point guard (Tyrese Maxey) on the roster. Young Maxey will not be playing 48 minutes.
Might be a problem, might not be, but certainly unusual. – 1:14 PM

The Pelicans will battle the Sixers tonight in the 2021-22 season opener and it’ll be so great just to focus on actual basketball.

All the Ben Simmons ~stuff~ has made the fact that the Sixers open the season tonight an afterthought. But they will play the first of at least 82 basketball games tonight. How are they going to look on the court — with or without Simmons? inquirer.com/sixers/sixers-…10:41 AM

More on this storyline

When asked what he would do if he was in Simmons’ shoes, Bogut’s response was simple: “make your own decisions and be professional”. “It’s paramount that you come in, whether you want to be in Philly or not,” Bogut said. “Just show up. “You don’t have to do all the kumbaya stuff, you don’t have to hang around in the locker room, you don’t have to shoot the breeze with the players and the coaches and act like you like them. -via news.com.au / October 21, 2021

“I’m disappointed with Ben Simmons,” Goorjian told SEN Breakfast on Thursday. “I look at it and go God, man, please fix this and let this kid blossom “It looks unattainable right now, though I don’t know that you can do anything other than (what the 76ers) did. “You’ve got a guy who needs to be moved, how do you move him? “That it’s at this point is horrible and I don’t have an answer to how you deal with a situation like that. -via FOXSports.com / October 21, 2021

“He’s special, and he’s a tremendous talent, and I would love and I hope that the opportunity presents itself or he gets to a situation where he can show who he is. “He’s also a very good teammate. He’s been criticised … (but) he’s conscious of getting other people involved in the game. It’s what he does. “It’s not my situation, but I look at the kid as being part of our family.” -via FOXSports.com / October 21, 2021
