Basketball star Ben Simmons recently announced he wouldn’t be joining the Australian Boomers squad at the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.

While the 24-year-old will be busy using the NBA off-season to work on his skills on the court, he will spend his free time at his newly purchased home in one of Los Angeles‘ most exclusive suburbs.

The Philadelphia 76ers star, who famously dated model Kendall Jenner, has spent $23.3million (US$17.5million) on a stunning property in a gated community in Hidden Hills, reports Dirt.com.

Simmons indicated this week that while he remained committed to representing the Boomers in the Olympics now was not the time, following a string of inconsistent performances after Philadelphia’s early exit from the NBA playoffs.

Boomers coach Brian Goorjian said: ‘It is a pretty rough time for him right now and I know it is something that he wanted to do, but the timing just hasn’t worked.

‘The best thing for everybody right now is for him to go on and develop that skill package and improve in a couple of areas for his next season in the NBA, but the Boomers are always here for him. 

‘We wanted him to know that in his time of need, the culture and the guys here are behind him and support him.’
