The NBA draft is only 24 days away, and even though all the buzz is about Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball, they’ll probably be gone by the time the Sixers draft at No. 3 overall.
So, that probably leaves them with Malik Monk.
Because Ben Simmons will be playing point, they can concentrate on getting a shooting guard.
What better scorer is there than the 6-3 Monk? He’s a shooting guard with an elite offensive skill set. He can shoot, drive, dunk with the best of them, and he can run the floor.
This is a perfect setting for a unselfish player like Simmons. The Sixers also have Joel Embiid for inside and outside action.
