    So does that mean he's not interested in Toronto or Portland but only Cal?

    Sounds like it, and his mind is still unfocused and aloof.

    The irony is that in terms of arrogance, Portland and Simmons are a match made in heaven.

    If he wants to be in Cali so badly, send him to Sacramento.

    So, we're supposed to take the word of a San Francisco sports reporter named Jason Dumass as gospel? Might he be just a tad prejudiced towards wanting Simmons to play for the Warriors?

    So he's calling his shot?

    If this prima donna doesn't want to play for Portland, then we should cut all communications with the 76ers too.

    It's funny watching the 76ers pretend like they have control over this situation.

    Remember when C-Web really didn't want to go to Sacramento? They traded for him anyway.

    Simmons agent needs to slap him upside the head and give him a reality check. I honestly only want players in Portland who want to be here..that's the bottom line ..sounds like this rich 25 year old athlete has disco fever...

    If thats his feelings, I dont want him in pdx. Ive watched his doc and it seemed he was always unsure about what he wanted and his fam has a whole lot of influence on him especially his older sis.

    Hey PDX bros, did you know we are both 'bad situation' brothers?

    What a guy this Ben Simmons is.

    Screw Simmons not as much cause he does not want to come to Pdx but more the fact I now believe he may NEVER get it so F' em ( sorry to be so blunt )

    What's the news? A Bay Area sports radio host, Bay Area writer for B/R and local news sports guy said he thinks that Simmons would be "open" to the Warriors. Do you see how that's not exactly news? Simmons has never complained about where he was or made a statement about not wanting to be in certain places and this guy says about here and Toronto, "He's not really trying to go to those situations." WTF does that mean? In context he was talking about not wanting to go to a bad situation not a bad city. If that trade gets made and Dame gets on the phone with Simmons, that guy will be all in.

    That's not a Ben Simmons quote, it's a Bay Area sports talk show extrapolating on things he's heard that tilt the narrative towards the Warriors being Simmons' only destination. Just trying to make a name even if it's synonymous with Henry Abbott and at the same time get Bay Area listeners to tune in. That's all there is to this.

    We will see about that. But right now he's acting like a douchebag. I'm OK with a lot of stuff, but Don't Tread On PDX.

    Simmons hasn't said a word... Jason Dumas isn't attributing anything he said about the Simmons story as a quote. Also he said the Blazers and Raptors were bad team situations... what the dude was making up about Simmons wasn't even that he didn't like the cities. Read his article on B/R. It's obvious that he was doing his radio show and trying to get more listeners because getting Simmons there is according to Dumas now likely... it's radio show bullshit.
