Ben Simmons has been suspended from the Philadelphia 76ers season opener after refusing to do a defensive drill today in practice.
Simmons wants out of Philly and had been holding out. However, he showed up for practice when the team started to deny him his 360K checks for their pre-season games.
76ers coach Doc Rivers called Simmons a "distraction."
