So much for the process, it looks like we’re back to tanking in Philadelphia according to Keith Pompey.
Ben Simmons will sit out the rest of the year. His foot has not fully healed.

With his broken foot still not fully healed, Sixers brass will not risk his future on another lottery season, and have decided to shut him down for the rest of the year.
The question now remains, should Philly do the same with Joel Embiid, who’s missed almost 15 games with a knee injury?
The 76ers announced that Embiid is officially listed as doubtful for the next two games but the rookie center isn’t feeling how the team has previously reported his availability.
The Sixers say they expect Embiid could miss four more games prior to returning.
