Brooklyn Nets forward Ben Simmons and Klutch Sports have mutually decided to part ways, sources told ESPN. Simmons had been represented by Klutch since he came into the NBA as the No. 1 pick in 2016. The agency negotiated his five-year $177 million extension in 2019.

If this was “mutual” then I’m Reggie Evans on the glass.
What an incredible story this is. They gotta make the rise and fall of Ben Simmons into a 30 for 30 documentary. Guy is the #1 pick, becomes a multiple-time All Star, then fails miserably in the second round of the playoffs, holds out, forces a trade, sits for the whole year, and is now barely part of a Nets team that traded Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Then Klutch exits the picture and Ben’s basketball future is bleak. Maybe it’s time to join the FaZe Clan or Guangzhou Loong Lions.
