Ben Simmons signs max extension

Ben Simmons has agreed to a 5-year/$170M contract extension to remain with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Fantasy Impact

As expected. Retaining Simmons was always a priority for the 76ers, who have a dynamic core made up of Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, Al Horford and Simmons. Those four players are now on huge contracts, making Philadelphia’s cap situation a bit perilous in the next two years. Expect Simmons to remain a nightly triple-double threat who could elevate his game further by improving his jump shot.

Ben Simmons offered max contract by 76ers

Ben Simmons has been offered a five-year, $170M contract by the Philadelphia 76ers.

Fantasy Impact

Simmons, the former Rookie of the Year, has averaged 16.4 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 7.9 assists in his two years in the NBA. He still has a lot of room for growth in his shooting, but Simmons is a unique talent as a 6’10 point guard who hasn’t yet reached his ceiling. The contract hasn’t been signed yet, but Simmons and his agent Rich Paul are expected to hammer out the details and get the deal done in short order.

Ben Simmons scores 14 points in Saturday's win

Ben Simmons had 14 points, four rebounds, four assists, two steals, and a block in 26 minutes on Saturday. He shot 6-of-10 from the field during the 116-96 win over the Bulls.

Fantasy Impact

Simmons played limited minutes on Saturday with the Sixers out to a comfortable lead. He could continue to see reduced playing time or a game off in the Sixers last two games as they look to be locked into the number three seed in the East.

Ben Simmons (illness) is out on Monday

Ben Simmons (illness) has been ruled out for the Sixers game against the Magic on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Simmons has an upset tummy so it's likely he'll be back by next game. All the stars will see a boost, while TJ McConnell joins the starting five as an interesting DFS option.
