One of those changes includes moving Ben Simmons from his usual point guard spot to the power forward position. He’s almost like a chess piece as Brown can move him around and see where he best fits on the floor. “I’m a basketball player. At the end of the day, you know me, if you put me on the floor, I’ll make anything happen. Whether it’s plays, buckets, stops, I’ll guard anybody 1-through-5, I run the floor, I can get to the rim, I can score the basketball, I make plays happen. So wherever you put me 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 it’s going to happen. I don’t really look like the title of a position.”
As for Al Horford, this means that he has to move to the second unit.
“He’s a player. He just plays,” Simmons said of Horford.
