the SixerWhich is deciding what will change this season. Still insisting that they are committed. Ben Simmons In the long run, however, if the 76ers seriously explore Simmons’ potential during this offseason, Timberwolves It is among the teams expected to show interest, Darren Wolfson of SKOR North said on The Scoop (audio link).

That would make him a good fit for Minnesota.
