Ben Simmons is unlikely to work out for any NBA teams in advance of the draft.
We’re still not sold on Simmons being the prohibitive No. 1 pick just like we weren’t sure that Anthony Davis was the prohibitive No. 1 pick like the big box sites thought last year. There’s no great reason for Simmons to work out, either, as all he can do is clank a bunch of jumpers and highlight the part of his game that causes a lot of concern. And the more he talks the more he will be able to reveal the character issues that have plagued him at every stop so far. Right now there is a lot of momentum toward him being the No. 1 pick and it will be on Philly to look past that and select Brandon Ingram with the No. 1 pick.
