Top 5 NBA Prospects: Ben Simmons (1)

BEN SIMMONS (LSU)

Pros: What don’t you know about him? Putting up high school numbers at the college level’s no easy task. Silky smooth offensively. Can pull up from just about anywhere, and finish over just about any one. Point guard vision in the body of a power forward. “Wow” athleticism on both ends of the floor. Wingspan that gets in passing/shooting lanes for steals and blocked shots. 6’10”, 240 and can play any position at both ends.

Cons: Any deficiencies have been blamed on his poor team, so hard to know. Mentality hard to figure out. Needs to take things one step at a time rather than think he’s the biggest deal in the league next year.
