The NBA Draft is still two days away, but the Philadelphia 76ers have already made up their mind on who to select.
This morning Philadelphia 76ers informed camp of Ben Simmons he would be taken No. 1 in NBA Draft, league sources tell @clevelanddotcom.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) June 21, 2016
It's not much of a surprise, as the LSU forward has long been the projected No. 1 overall pick. The Lakers are then expected to take Brandon Ingram No. 2, and the draft truly starts at the No. 3 overall pick with the Boston Celtics.
The 76ers worked out the 6-foot-10 small forward Tuesday. ESPN reports the 76ers are now the only team with Simmons' medical info.
Simmons had 19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game. He's a gifted passer and solid defender, but needs work on his shooting, especially from 3-point range.Back to the Philadelphia 76ers Newsfeed
