Ben Simmon's New Jersey Mansion For Sale Amid Philadelphia 76ers Scandal

Alexandra Lozovschi

In the aftermath of his suspension from the Philadelphia 76ers, All-Star point guard Ben Simmons seems eager to be moving on. The 25-year-old NBA star is now looking to unload his New Jersey mansion, which The New York Post is interpreting as a sign he's determined to leave the team for good.

Simmons, who is followed by 5.8 million on Instagram, is asking for $5 million for the Moorestown home, which is located just 20 minutes away from Camden, where the 76ers practice.

Scoring A Big Profit

According to The New York Post, Simmons is standing to score a hefty profit should he sell his New Jersey pad for the asking price. The basketball player only paid just under $2.3 million for the property back in 2019 and could be walking away with a decent sum from the deal.

The move comes less than four months after Simmons shelled out $17.5 million for a 12,000 square-foot Los Angeles mansion, which has also been interpreted as significant for the direction in which his career might be heading, per The Sports Rush.

10,477 Square Feet Of Bliss

Simmons' 10,477-square-foot abode sounds like a dream, boasting five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and an impressive list of amenities that include a spacious foyer with a grand staircase, a formal dining room with a wine wall, a wet bar and a dry bar with a large walk-in pantry, and a gourmet kitchen in addition to the informal dining space.

Likewise, the primary suite comes with another wet bar, fireplace, sitting area, and private terrace.

Simmons put up the home for sale on Wednesday, with Trulia listing publishing some truly incredible photos of the 1.78-acre residence.

Basketball Memorabilia On Display

Located at the end of a cul-de-sac, the manse comes with its own dog park for pet lovers. But perhaps its most exciting feature is the "fully finished entertainment-friendly basement," which "is a marvel to see."

It incorporates an "oversized" home theater with custom couches and lounge chairs, a "massive" fish tank, a billiards area, and a private gaming room with its own full-service bar, bathroom, and candy room.

The basement is rich with basketball memorabilia, including Simmons' framed jerseys and magazine covers lining the walls. There's also a custom neon sign featuring his gamertag, Simmo the Savage.

Not Looking Back

Simmons' decision to sell the gorgeous Philly mansion is being seen as a clear step in breaking away from the Sixers, CBS Sports is reporting.

Although there was some hope that their broken relationship could be fixed when the former No. 1 pick recently rejoined the team after holding out of training camp to refusing to participate in drills, it looks like the rift might be permanent.

In the midst of his suspension on Wednesday and the drama surrounding it, Simmons' availability for the Sixers' season opener remains a big question mark.
