Brooklyn Nets guard Ben Simmons has reportedly deleted his Instagram account
This comes just after news stating teammates Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving wanting to leave the Nets surfaced. Kevin Durant has stated that he wants to be traded. Moreover, the Nets want Kyrie Irving out by the start of next season. The 25-year-old Australian point guard will definitely have a difficult time next season if both the moves come to pass.

All hopes of an easy life on the same team as two volume shooters are ruined. The Nets star is definitely nervous about the situation resorting to closing down his Instagram account for the moment and staying off-grid. This might give him more time to focus on the situation at hand and work on finding a way out of the tricky situation.
A bright future ahead
Simmons is undoubtedly one of the best current players in the NBA. He was the 2016 first overall pick and is also a three-time NBA all-star. The star was just recently traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Nets mid 2022 season and is still yet to play for his new team. At just 25 years old, Simmons is simply one of the best defenders and passers in the NBA. However, one major setback to his game play is his shooting. Critics have raised troubling concerns over his poor shooting, which might be put under more light once Irving and Durant make a move out.
Despite all this, Simmons is an excellent player who has never missed the playoffs. He’s still got a couple of years under his belt till he reaches his prime. Simmons was actually excited about the move to the Nets. His last post on Instagram expressed how it felt incredible to be able to play alongside two NBA greats. However, as soon as the news about both stars rumoured to be leaving the team surfaced, things took a turn.
The comments on his Instagram post became out of control and he just couldn’t handle it anymore. As a result, fans will now need to keep an eye on his fiancée, Maya Jama, to keep tabs on Simmons.
