James, who is headed to his eighth straight NBA Finals and fourth straight with the Cleveland Cavaliers, can become a free agent this summer by opting out of his deal with his current team, giving room to rumors and speculations about The King possibly joining The Fresh Prince in holding court for the City of Brotherly Love.

Simmons added that the Sixers’ overall goal is to go further than their second round exit this NBA Playoffs and “try to win a ring.”

The 21-year-old point guard also gave his thoughts on fellow NBA Rookie of the Year candidate Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz.

“Plays the game the right way. He can score. Great player but…,” Simmons said as he shrugged his shoulders.
