76ers Declare Ben Simmons as The #1 Pick

The Philadelphia 76ers have informed Ben Simmons that they will select him with the No. 1 pick in Thursday’s NBA draft.

The 76ers’ promise was first reported by Cleveland.com and confirmed by ESPN.

The team worked Simmons out privately on Tuesday, the first and only workout Simmons has done leading up to the draft. This was after theLSU star met with the team last week in Cleveland, where Simmons had been working out.

Simmons told SportsCenter on Tuesday he was in Philadelphia to “introduce myself.”

He later posted “Trust the process” on his Instagram account along with a picture showing him in a 76ers workout jersey.
