2016 MOCK DRAFT: SIXERS GET 6-10 POINT FORWARD BEN SIMMONS!

The ESPN forecast has predicted the Sixers would finish with the worst record in the league for the past two years. In 2014, they finished second to last. In 2015, they were third to last. Third time’s the charm?

The Sixers have two potentially dominant big men in Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel and possibly a third in Joel Embiid if he ever gets healthy — but they still need plenty of help in the backcourt and on the wing. Simmons is really a positionless player. He’s 6-10, 240, and plays like a point guard. The comparisons to a young LeBron James or Magic Johnson show how highly regarded he is by scouts. Simmons, as a versatile playmaker, could be a great fit in Philly. In fact, he has more upside and potential than any of the four lottery picks the Sixers have selected in the past three drafts. So tank away, Sixers. Maybe 2016 will be your year.

Odds of winning lottery: 25 percent
