As the NBA Draft nears, many are wondering where Ben Simmons will be playing next year as the Philadelphia 76ers have the #1 pick followed by the Los Angeles Lakers who have the #2 pick. With so much hype and potential, Ben Simmons is projected to be the #1 pick in the draft but according to Keith Pompey of, Simmons is not going to do a workout for any team including the Sixers prior to the draft. While the Sixers will continue to try to persuade Simmons to come take a visit to Philadelphia, the Sixers may have to make a trip down to Ohio to see Simmons. The 20-year-old forward is represented by Rich Paul of Klutch Sports Group based in Cleveland, Ohio where he has been since the end of his college playing days. It may be surprising that Simmons won't work out for the Sixers but so did Joel Embiid, Nerlens Noel, and Jahlil Okafor and they ended up in Philly in the end.
