Ben Simmons, the number one overall pick in last years draft is making, shall we say, progress. Simmons will play this season, it’s just a matter of when. Today, he took a positive step in that direction.
Today was the first time that Ben Simmons walked on the court in sneakers.

Coach Brown: "[@BenSimmons25] walked out on the court [this morning] in sneakers and shot free throws. That is significant to me."
