Ben Simmons has heard people question whether the Philadelphia 76ers are making the correct decision to have him play point guard.
“Everybody is a coach,” Simmons said late Sunday at the NBA Summer League. “Everybody is a GM.”
Simmons is clear on how he envisions himself on the floor.
“For me, I think you can move me anywhere,” Simmons said. “But I’m a starting point guard.”
The Sixers believe Markelle Fultz, a solid shooter and another point guard, is the perfect backcourt complement to Simmons.
“I have no problem sharing the ball,” Simmons said. “He doesn’t, either. Watching him play, he can share the ball.”
