I never really liked Simmons after I watched that documentary on him. He's a childish diva, which is surprising since his father was an NBA player, you think he would have raised him better. He can't accept any criticism, so what if he got booed because he passed up a dunk, he also got a standing ovation when he made a 3 pointer in a game. So his coach said he wasn't sure if he was a point guard for a championship team. If he had any backbone at all, he would take criticism and use it as fuel to get better and work on his shot, not just in Instagram videos, but in actual games. Instead he views it a personal barbs and sulks like a 4 year old.
He never needed to be Steph Curry, he just needed to make 70% of his free throws and have a 10 foot jumper that would be at least decent enough that he could shoot a few and them use pump fakes to take guys off the dribble to the basket.
I hope he sits out, doesn't get paid and gets fined. I hope they can still get some value for him, maybe someone goes down in training camp or early in the season and his value increases. In all honesty, good riddance you stupid, heartless, spoiled baby.
