Ben Simmons As Present And Future Point Guard Of The 76ers

When Sam Hinkie initiated the Philadelphia 76ers' rebuild back in June of 2013, trading Jrue Holiday for Nerlens Noel along with the pick that would eventually become Dario Saric, it created a hole at point guard.

Manu Ginobili talks interest in 76ers before sticking with Spurs

For Manu Ginobili, the Philadelphia 76ers were much more than a leverage piece for more money.
