Simmons hints at LeBron-76ers move
BEN Simmons has just hinted at the potential of teaming up with LeBron James.
Or he could just be trolling everyone.
Early Monday morning (Australian time), the Australian point guard posted a cryptic photo on Instagram, showing himself alongside Klutch Sports Groupl clients, James, John Wall, and Tristan Thompson.
The image came with the caption, "June 30 Midnight."
That caption is what set people off. June 30, at midnight, is when upcoming free agents can sign a new contract, and James will be one of those players on the market.
Simmons has made no secret of his desire to play alongside James in the past, and with Philly finally heading in the right direction as an organisation, the 76ers represent a potential landing spot for the 33-year old.
"I'd love to play with him," Simmons told foxsports.com.au's Olgun Uluc in December. "I think that'd be a lot of fun, just because we both have different games, and unique games. Whatever happens, happens, but whoever I'm playing against, I wanna go at."
