Ben Simmons said that he believes he is "a starting point guard."
The Sixers began grooming Simmons, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft, as a point guard last year. However, the Sixers then traded up to draft Markelle Fultz in June and signed J.J. Redick to a $23-million contract this month. It will be difficult to find enough minutes for all three players in the same backcourt. Ideally, Simmons would be content playing more of a hybrid 'point forward' role in the offense. This is a situation to keep an eye on in the preseason. Jul 11 - 1:05 PM
