Ben Simmons
PF, 6’10, 240lbs, 20 years old, 1 year of experience

An offence built around him and Fultz is an offence I want to see. Fultz, Simmons, Embiid, Saric, Holmes and Covington, with the hope that one of the trio of Stauskas, Anderson and Luwawu-Cabarrot becomes the new Michael Finley or something, is about as good of a platform as any team can have without having drafted a LeBron or Durant type. Health permitting, of course. And Simmons’s health as well.

Player Plan: Three years of rookie scale salary remaining. Obviously things are off to a pretty slow start, but the commitment to him should remain.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
