Ben Simmons has bought into coach Brett Brown’s vision that Simmons will be the Philadelphia 76ers’ starting point guard for the 2017-18 season.

“I think you can move me anywhere. But I’m a starting point guard,” Simmons told reporters Sunday at the Las Vegas summer league.

If he is officially listed by the 76ers at point guard, the 6-foot-10 Simmons would sit atop the list of tallest rotation point guards for the 2017-18 season. Golden State Warriors backup Shaun Livingston currently tops that list at 6-7, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
