According to reports, Simmons was ejected from practice by Sixers head coach Doc Rivers for not being engaged, and, per a press release from the team, has been suspended for one game due to conduct detrimental to the team.
Between struggles on the offensive end and lack of transition defense, the Pelicans would be able to steal this game from the Sixers. They would walk away with a 101-94 victory, moving the Sixers to 1-1 on their current road trip.
After all the madness of the NBA trade deadline came and went, the Sixers would be in action on Wednesday night. They would be facing off against a depleted Lakers' squad for the third game of their six-game road trip.
