Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com reported on Tuesday that Ben Simmons has been told he’ll go No. 1 to the Sixers in Thursday’s NBA Draft.
Haynes’ record isn’t perfect but he’s connected around the league and in Cleveland where Simmons’ agent Rich Paul is making his nest. We can’t say enough how 90 percent of what you read this time of year is total BS, but this report lines up with all the other reports putting Simmons at No. 1. The Lakers have to be throwing themselves a party with the prospect of getting Brandon Ingram at No. 2.
