Rich Paul & Ben Simmons

Agent Rich Paul revealed what his client did, which was a step in the right direction.

In the aftermath of the trade that changed the championship picture this season, Ben Simmons immediately made his moves to make up for the lost time. Agent Rich Paul revealed what his client did, which was a step in the right direction. 

Ben Simmons reached out to KD 

Rich Paul revealed Ben Simmons reached out to Kevin Durant and general manager Sean Marks after getting traded to Brooklyn. 

Simmons is making an effort to get off on the right foot this time. He knows the value of getting traded to a team with a real chance of contending for the title. Even if the Brooklyn Nets are on a 9-game losing streak, no team would want to face them early in the playoffs with a healthy Durant, Kyrie Irving, and a focused Simmons.

The gesture was the complete opposite of what he’s shown in the past months if media reports were to be believed. Ben earned the outrage of Sixers’ fans after allegedly refusing to participate in team drills. The lefty forward also used mental health as an excuse not to play this season.

Simmons can save the Nets’ season 

Minus the drama, Simmons remains an All-Star talent who can make any team better. It didn’t work in Philadelphia because he was asked to shoot more. In Brooklyn, he can focus on defense and playmaking. Irving and Durant are more than capable of shouldering the offensive load every night. 

Was refusing to play and join team practices all worth it? The former Sixers’ star lost more than $20 million in fines this season. If Ben can help KD and Kyrie win the title this year, all of it would be worth it. 

Ben knows he needs to show up and silence all his critics. If and when he finally suits up for the Nets, we might see a different Simmons. The Australian forward is determined to make things right this time. His revenge season starts now.
