Any hopes the Philadelphia 76ers had of reconciling with Ben Simmons appear to be gone. The three-time All-Star will indeed hold out of training camp and is intent on never playing a game for the team again, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski

Simmons made it clear earlier this summer that he wanted to be traded, and would be willing to sit out to make that happen -- even in the face of potential fines. But thus far the Sixers have not been able to find a deal that suits them, which has resulted in an awkward stalemate.
