Did Ben Simmons reveal he’s headed to 76ers on Instagram? (pic)


Ben Simmons may have just revealed the scoop of the 2016 NBA Draft with an Instagram post featuring a photo from his workout Tuesday with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Reports indicate that Simmons’ workout with the team provided tacit confirmation the team would be selecting him with the first overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft.

The highly touted prospect out of LSU also posted a photograph from said workout with a phrase that should ring true to 76ers fans and NBA followers alike.

“Trust the process,” Simmons wrote on Instagram, a reference to the 76ers’ organizational mantra from Sam Hinkle’s tenure as the team’s general manager.

76ers director of public relations Michael Preston also took to Twitter to post a photo of Simmons meeting with head coach Brett Brown.

In other words, Simmons joining the Sixers as the top pick may be a foregone conclusion at this point. Then again, things can quickly change when it comes to the draft.
