Ben Simmons: ‘I’m A Starting Point Guard’

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Ben Simmons is 6-foot, 10-inches. That’s not usually the size of most point-guards, but he doesn’t care.

“I think you can move me anywhere,” Simmons said Sunday at the Las Vegas Summer League. “But I’m a starting point guard.”

According to ESPN Stats & Information, Golden State’s Shaun Livingston is currently the tallest NBA point guard at 6-foot, 7-inches.

When asked about playing along 6’5″ teammate Markelle Fultz — who injured his ankle on Saturday night — Simmons says it’ll work fine.

“I have no problem sharing the ball,” Simmons said via “He doesn’t, either. Watching him play, he can share the ball.”

Simmons, the Sixers’ No. 1 overall pick in 2017, missed his entire rookie season after injuring his foot just before the start of preseason.
