I don't see Simmons as a PF. I see Simmons playing a LeBron James type of role (note: I am not comparing their abilities, only their roles).
You can have Simmons and 2 of our bigs on the floor, so we need to fill the 2 backcourt spots.
So how do you fill those 2 spots?
- we have 2 more 1st round picks. Perhaps you can combine those and move up?
- we have LOTS of cap space to get a free agent or two
- we can trade one of the bigs
...when you look at it, Philly has the possibility to put together a really good '16-'17 squad.
