After 36 games the 76ers have already surpassed their win total from last season as they are now 11-25 and showing the promise of a bright future after three consecutive seasons of less then 20 wins each year that has been labelled as "The Process".  But the current roster as it is constituted is not what will be in place three years from now and a major part of the team's future has yet still to play a game since being drafted: Ben Simmons.

Chris Mannix of NBC Sports Radio and The Vertical joined Mike Gill on Thursday to discuss what it will look like when Simmons makes his debut for the Sixers:

"I think (Sixers) will be more diverse offensively; Brett Brown's been clear he wants to play Ben Simmons as a Point Guard when he comes back.  I'd love to see what he looks like after watching him in Summer League really show great court vision, he had a special look to him when I saw him play out in Las Vegas and I'd like to see how that translates to the NBA level.  But he's going to have some rough nights shooting the basketball when he comes back, he wasn't a very good shooter at LSU, he wasn't a very good shooter at Summer League, I think he will have a lot of problems his first year in the NBA.  It's just another step in the process of building this team into an eventual winner."
