Magic Johnson could possibly be a straight-up liar, based on comments Elton Brand made a short time ago on 97.5 the Fanatic.
Speaking with Jason Martinez and The Cuz, Brand says Lakers’ General Manager Rob Pelinka contacted the Sixers about a possible Ben Simmons/Magic Johnson summer session:
"Rob Pelinka called me and said that Ben (Simmons) wanted to talk to Hall of Famers after the season, Magic was on the list. He asked for authorization… I said no. This was over a month ago." – Elton Brand shooting down the Ben/Magic meeting 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Okay good, glad that’s over.
Practice is wrapping up right now, so we’ll see if anything else is said.
