Even though he will not workout for them, sources indicate Ben Simmons is fine with being drafted by the 76ers.
There has been no indication of who the 76ers will select with the first pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. It’s been reported that Simmons’ preference is to land on the Lakers, who have an impressive young core (Russell, Clarkson, Randle) and could land free agents in the offseason. With the draft being held on June 23rd, the Sixers still have 3 weeks to decide whether they’ll draft draft Ben Simmons or Brandon Ingram.
