Sixers First Round Picks Impress In Summer League
NBA Summer League is underway and what is high on many Sixers' fans interest meters is how Ben Simmons and the other young players look on the court in real game action.
Brian Seltzer of Sixers.com joined The Sports Bash on Wednesday and gave his first hand perspective of Ben Simmons' play on the court:
"The passing probably is what a lot of people zeroed in on but defensively he altered some possessions...early on in the game he was down in the crouch, down in his stance, he was able to switch out on Guards. He was 2 for 9 from the floor but he seemed really comfortable shooting that elbow jumper on the left side that we saw on tape, that 15-footer, (and) good from the Free Throw line. So I think, all and all, for a first performance 10 Points, 8 Rebounds, 5 Assists, pretty good."
Seltzer also spoke about another Sixers 1st round pick and his play so far in NBA Summer League:
"Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot has a personality, not just off the court but on the court, showed an ability to shoot it from the outside, he hit 2 threes on Monday, he had that great finish when Simmons set him up."
