“He’s doing great,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said today of rookie Ben Simmons on 97.5 The Fanatic. “We’re in the middle of another long road trip, we’ve got six left on the road. Five at home. [Ben]’s been with us on the whole trip. He’s resumed a sort of, normal training schedule.
“There still is no timeline on it. But, to have the ability to have him with me and with us … You treat him like he’s in the game and on the team. it’s just that ongoing growth that rookies need. Even though he didn’t touch the court this year, we were able to expedite some of those things that get him ready for his first NBA season next year.”
