DraftExpress: Ben Simmons doing a great job defending the much shorter Allonzo Trier (maybe 6-4). Helps ease any lingering concerns about tweener status.

DraftExpress: Next step in Ben Simmons' development will be to polish his outside shot. Takes less than two 3s per game and made just 65% of FTS in EYBL.

DraftExpress: When I first saw Ben Simmons playing two years ago (w\/Dante Exum and the Australia NT) he was strictly an athlete. Developed a floor game.

DraftExpress: Plenty to like about #1 ranked Ben Simmons but it's nice to see how competitive a defender & how unselfish he is. Really impressive passer.

October 19, 2012
Jonathan Givony

Strengths:
-Solid size at 6-8 or possibly 6-9
-Great frame for his age. Very mature physically
-Smooth, fluid athlete
-Very good leaper
-Excellent in transition
-Finishes well around the basket
-Lefty who shows the ability to use both hands effectively
-Can make an occasional pull-up jumper
-Good potential defensively. Moves feet well. Can guard either forward position at junior level. Makes plays at the rim
-Team player. Makes the extra pass.

Weaknesses:
-Limited offensively in the half-court
-Average ball-handler
-Poor outside shooter
-Very unconventional shooting mechanics
-No post moves
-Somewhat passive at times

Outlook: Extremely young. Only 15 years old at the U17 World Championship. Skill-level still catching up. Able to dominate players his age using his superior strength and athleticism. A little bit stuck between forward positions at the moment. Needs to improve as a ball-handler and shooter to play as a small forward. Will likely play college basketball starting in 2015.
