Scott O'Neil Hints Ben Simmons Will Be Sixers No. 1 Pick

New, comments

Simmons to Philly is probably happening.

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

In case you thought there was any room left for debate, one of the most prominent members of the Sixers front office appears to have spilled the beans on who the No. 1 pick will be.

Congratulations to Jamal Murray on being the first overall pick!

In all seriousness, Ben Simmons' coronation is just days away. I am over the moon about the Sixers having the opportunity to draft a talent like Simmons and push the rebuild forward, even if many subsequent steps have to follow to restore this proud franchise to its former glory.

A 6'10 forward with superb athleticism, transcendent court vision and elite finishing ability will almost assuredly be a member of the Sixers in three days. After three years of waiting, Sixers diehards are getting their reward.
