PG among No. 1 priorities for 76ers' Simmons

(TSX / STATS) -- Ben Simmons, already looking ahead to next season as the Philadelphia 76ers' starting point guard, is excited about the team's new additions.

The 6-foot-10 Simmons said he has bought into head coach Brett Brown's vision for the 2017-18 season, even though he would be one of the tallest players to ever play point guard in the NBA.

"I think you can move me anywhere. 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.
