Ben Simmons files grievance against 76ers over withheld salary (report)

Ben Simmons has reportedly filed an a grievance to challenge the nearly $ 20 million salary withheld from him by the 76ers this season, ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, Bobby Marks and Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Saturday morning.

The grievance, which was filed with the team, NBA and National Basketball Players Association late this week will now go to an arbitration process, per the report.

In an attempt to resolve the situation without arbitration, Simmons’s representatives reportedly had multiple conversations with the Sixers since the 25-year-old point guard was traded to the Nets in a deal involving All-Star guard James Harden on Feb. 10, for ESPN. However, the two sides were unable to reach a resolution in those independent talks.
