"But I'm a starting point guard", Simmons, the No. 1 overall pick in last season's draft, told reporters in Las Vegas on Sunday night while watching the NBA Summer League games. However, this hasn't derailed his confidence that he can handle the duties of playing point guard despite previously playing exclusively at forward. "Just trying to get back to how I was playing and I've been doing well", Simmons said. Simmons had this to say regarding his position on offense, "I think Coach [Brown] wants to start me at the point, but I think once we get into the flow of things, whoever gets the rebound is going".

When the Philadelphia 76ers used the No. 1 pick in the 2016 National Basketball Association draft on Ben Simmons, one of the immediate questions was how exactly the team would deploy him. "I think the sky is the limit", Simmons said.

Simmons averaged 4.8 assists while playing forward in his only season at LSU. He and Markelle Fultz, this year's first selection in the draft, will likely both see time running the point for Philadelphia. "I have no problem sharing the ball, he doesn't either".

The 2016 number one pick, Ben Simmons, missed his entire rookie season with a foot injury. The 76ers reportedly plan to pair Simmons and Fultz in the backcourt plenty.

"After drafting Fultz last month, Brown said of Simmons: 'We're excited to use him as the primary ball-carrier'". To complement its slew of promising young talent, Philadelphia has also signed veterans J.J. Redick and Amir Johnson as free agents this summer.
