Despite all the precipitation, will Ben Simmons play in the Philadelphia uniform this season?
At least according to an evening (Monday) report by Adrian Wojnerowski from ESPN, the prodigal son may return to the Sixers in the next few days after talks between the parties continue unexpectedly.
It is further reported that there is a possibility that the Australian Guard will stabilize at the team's training facility very soon after talks about a possible trade have been frozen.
As you may recall, about two weeks ago it was reported that the Philly management had decided to cut Simmons' salary if he did not report for the start of the training camp.
After a few days, there is talk of a compromise, which will allow Simmons to receive his full salary - the guard will claim that he is injured, will enter the team's injured list and thus be able to receive the full contract he signed.
Ben Simmons and the 76ers have made progress on a resolution to bring him back to the team, per @wojespn
Philadelphia will still survey the league to trade him.

It should be noted that the saga between the parties began at the end of the summer when the Australian Guard met with the team management and informed them that he does not intend to wear the Sixers jersey anymore and is not even interested in coming to the training camp, which opened last month.
