Simmons on 76ers: Could Not be in Better Situation


Ben Simmons thinks he is in an ideal situation with the Philadelphia 76ers.

After finishing his Las Vegas Summer League with a 74-66 win over Miami on Friday, the No. 1 overall draft pick says Philadelphia is the right place for him given his history with coach Brett Brown and teammates Joel Embiid and Jahlil Okafor.

“It is pretty perfect,” Simmons said of being surrounded by familiar faces in Philadelphia. “I could not be in a better situation.”
