Ben Simmons on playing with Markelle Fultz: 'I'm a starting point guard'

Sixers' former No. 1 draft pick Ben Simmons: 'I'm a starting point guard'

This immediately brought into question what exactly were the 76ers' long-term plans for Ben Simmons as it was previously reported that the team was going to play the former 2016 first overall selection at point guard once he able to take the court. But I think from what I have studied from his childhood, high school and at LSU, I feel confident that we should try this and look at it.

"After drafting Fultz last month, Brown said of Simmons: 'We're excited to use him as the primary ball-carrier'".

On Sunday morning, the rookie point guard out of Washington made sure to let all his fans know that he's okay.

That said, the Sixers are still shutting him down for the remainder of the Vegas Summer League and they're preventing him from taking part in basketball activities for the next two weeks. "[Fultz] doesn't, either. Watching him play, he can share the ball".

"For me, I think you can move me anywhere", Simmons said. ESPN points out that he'd be by far the tallest official point guard in the league at 6-foot-10, although Giannis Antetokounmpo at 6-foot-11 handles the ball a bit also, but is still listed as a small forward.

Simmons has been groomed to play the position while he rehabilitated his foot this entire offseason. To complement its slew of promising young talent, Philadelphia has also signed veterans J.J. Redick and Amir Johnson as free agents this summer. He often penetrates and finds the open player while point guard Steph Curry is stationed without the ball at the 3-point line.
