76ers GM Elton Brand Shut Down Potential Ben Simmons, Magic Johnson Meeting

Magic Johnson will not get a chance to share "big guard secrets" with 76ers All-Star Ben Simmons as long as Philadelphia general manager Elton Brand has a say.

Brand was a guest on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia to discuss the new-look 76ers and he ended up discussing a potential meeting between the Hall of Famer and the No. 1 pick from the 2016 draft.

Prior to the 76ers beating the Lakers Sunday, Johnson said Simmons reached out to the Lakers to discuss possibly meeting with Johnson to talk about playing point guard in the NBA as a bigger guy.
