In the current NBA season, the most headlined news was about the trade deal between the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers where both franchisees traded their key-guard players, Ben Simmons and James Harden. This deal was considered one of the most successful trade deals in NBA history as both teams were seen in a win-win situation on paper. But in reality, the Nets are still not able to take any advantage, because Simmons hasn’t played a single game with the team since he joined them.

The Nets are aiming to win the Championship with Simmons’ impact on the team, but no one is sure that the former Sixers star will be able to perform the way Nets wants. The same question was raised by Former Boston Celtics center, Kendrick Perkins on the recent episode of ESPN’s Get Up show.

Perkins stated, “They do need Ben Simmons, but what version of Ben Simmons? That’s the part we fail to realize. We haven’t seen Ben Simmons play since last June.”

The Nets fans are yet to see Simmons on the court in their infamous black and white jersey. The reason for this is still unanswered. But on last Friday Nets coach Steve Nash revealed Simmons has a herniated disk on his back and he is still recovering from it.

Nash said, “He hasn’t practiced for us yet, he’s done some individual workouts, then he had the flare-up. So that’s the next step. That’s the step he hasn’t gotten back to yet, is individual on-court workouts.”
