Bulls Denzel Valentine Calls Ben Simmons a ‘Mini-LeBron’


After getting an up-close look at Philadelphia’s Ben Simmons, Chicago rookie Denzel Valentine knows exactly who the No. 1 overall pick reminds him of.

“He’s like a mini-LeBron,” the Bulls’ 14th overall pick said after facing Simmons for the first time as a pro on Sunday. “LeBron’s probably top 10, so if he’s a mini-LeBron, that’s saying a lot.”
