2016-17

Since the 76ers decided to trade Andre Iguodala prior to the 2012-13 season and embrace a long-term rebuild, the team had failed to land the No. 1 overall pick in the previous three years, despite possessing a boatload of lottery picks. The organization's luck finally changed for the better in the 2016 NBA Draft, and the 76ers' brain trust needed little time to determine that Simmons was the player that they wanted to serve as the new face of the franchise. During his lone season at LSU, the Australian-born Simmons used his uncommon combination of size (6-foot-10, 240 pounds), athleticism and playmaking abilities to dominate the competition, averaging 19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game. He was especially breathtaking in transition -- both while running the break and finishing -- and excelled at drawing contact and getting to the free-throw line. While Simmons' jumper remains suspect and some talent evaluators have questioned his effort and intensity on the defensive end, there's still reason to believe that his immense physical gifts can overcome those deficiencies. The rookie was immediately slated to open his career as the 76ers' starting power forward, but after fracturing his foot during training camp, it appears the start of his NBA career will be delayed. It's uncertain how long Simmons will be sidelined, but once he's cleared to play, he could face minute or game restrictions temporarily before the 76ers allow him to go full bore. As such, those considering drafting Simmons in single-season leagues will have to determine if they can withstand a potential long-term absence, though the uniquely skilled forward's value in dynasty formats shouldn't be altered by the injury. Over time, Simmons figures to see more minutes at running the offense as a point forward, as the 76ers already boast considerable frontcourt depth with the likes of Jahlil Okafor, Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid and Dario Saric.
