Ben Simmons Wants A Former Sixth Man Of The Year Playing For The Sixers Next Year


It's no secret that the Philadelphia 76ers have one of the brightest futures in the NBA today, as years of tanking eventually paid off for the Sixers in the form of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, and with the likes of Dario Saric and Markelle Fultz still on the come up, the NBA could belong to Philadelphia after the Warriors' dominance comes to an end.

The Sixers pride themselves on their young core, with an emphasis on analytics and efficiency, but according to reigning Rookie of the Year Ben Simmons, Philly could use former Sixth Man of the Year Jamal Crawford.

Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson of Scoop B Radio spoke to Simmons at NBA 2K19’s launch night, and asked him if Crawford was considering a move to the Sixers.

Crawford, now 38-year-olds, is coming off one of the worse seasons of his career thus far with Minnesota, averaging only 10.3 points per game for the Wolves. Jamal declined his player option with Minnesota, making him a free agent as of right now, and with the end of his career now in sight, Crawford may be inclined to spend one year with the 76ers to help fill the hole left by the departure of Marco Bellineli this offseason.
