According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Brooklyn Nets star guard Ben Simmons and CEO of Klutch Sports Rich Paul met with GM Sean Marks and the Nets leadership today to discuss how they’ll continue to work through the physical and mental hurdles needed to get Simmons back on the court.

Simmons reiterated his desire to play for the Nets and the sides talked about how they’ll work together to try and get there. Both groups believe Simmons had two good weeks of physical ramp-up thru Sunday, but ultimately realized there are still mental and physical hurdles that need addressing.

The Nets believe Ben Simmons has been addressing both mental and physical areas in recent months, and recognize there’s more work to do. The Nets meet the Boston Celtics in Game 4 tonight in Brooklyn, trailing the series 3-0.
