As rumors continue to fly that Ben Simmons may be willing to return to the Philadelphia 76ers, coach Doc Rivers gave an optimistic update on the situation Monday.

Rivers confirmed that he has spoken to Simmons’ agent, Rich Paul, though not Simmons himself. The coach added that the Sixers have wanted Simmons back all along, and that he isn’t worried about the reception he’ll get from teammates if he does report to camp.

It’s entirely possible that this is all talk. Teams aren’t going to be motivated to make a big offer for Simmons if they believe the Sixers have no leverage. After all, it’s not as if Simmons has backed off his trade demand.

If Simmons were to play, he’d be in line for an incredibly harsh reception from Philadelphia fans. He’d also have to deal with the fact that he does seem to have alienated some of his teammates. All that makes it unlikely that Simmons actually factors for the Sixers this season.
