Article Summary:

The latest one is that the Sixers have talked to the Houston Rockets about sending Simmons to the Houston Rockets for superstar James Harden. The team won 113-107 in preseason action over the Indiana Pacers and Rivers was happy with what he saw from Simmons. “We had a good talk and so I wasn’t that concerned by that. What I was happy with was the paint, anybody. If you can get to the paint, good things can happen for your team, and then just have to be Ben. Every time we got in the paint something good happened for us. I like that we did that tonight.”

Dwight Howard filled in for an ill Joel Embiid and he teamed up with Simmons for some solid play in the win on Friday and he was happy with the All-Star guard as well. “We’ve been going in and setting screens for him that will free up him, but also free up the other shooters.”

Being a veteran, Howard understands that he does not need to demand the ball due to Simmons being such a good distributor.
