NewArena’s 2016 NBA Mock Lottery Draft

1. Philadelphia 76ers – Ben Simmons



With reports of Noel and/or Okafor on the move, it’s suggested that they are trying to adjust their roster to better fit Simmons. A looming question is Simmons’ reluctance to shoot from the perimeter and whether he can develop a jumpshot at the NBA level. His depressing season at LSU left doubt in some people’s mind about his ability to lift his level of play, but it doesn’t seem to bother the Sixrs. He looks to have the highest ceiling of any player in this year’s draft, and will shoulder the burden of attempting to bring the Philly franchise back to prominence.
