The NBA draft is exactly a month away — June 22 in Manhattan — and the Sixers have the No. 3 pick overall. So, here’s what Bill Simmons said yesterday on his podcast:

“Philly is the team I keep looking at. So Philly’s three. Philly moves up to one and they get Fultz or Lonzo. Probably Fultz. You put Fultz with Ben Simmons and Embiid and that’s it… if you keep Embiid and Simmons healthy, those are your three guys for the next 10 years. So if they love Fultz, and I don’t know if they do, would you offer the number three pick, Saric, who you don’t need because you have Ben Simmons coming, and the Lakers pick next year to move up two spots? That Lakers pick might not be a great pick, because they’re gonna try to get better this summer. Is that too much for that pick?”
