  • REPORT Former LSU basketball star Ben Simmons signs max contract extension with 76ers

For about a week now, an offer has been on the table for Ben Simmons from the Philadelphia 76ers.

Shooting be damned! The Philadelphia 76ers have extended the contract of their All-Star point guard Ben Simmons for five years worth $170M that runs through 2024. He has averaged 16.4 points, 8.5 rebounds and 7.9 assists in his two seasons. It was important for Philadelphia to make this happen and help them move forward in their quest to win a championship that they have been chasing.

He won Rookie of the Year in 2017-18 and earned All-Star honors this past season. Embiid signed a five-year, $147 million extension with the 76ers last fall.

National Basketball Association all-star Ben Simmons has just landed himself an early birthday present.

Blues sign Jordan Binnington to 2-year deal worth $4.4M AAV
Binnington was called up to the big club in the middle of the season and took over the starting job in January when St. The 23-year-old also played in 10 playoff games for the Stanley Cup champions, scoring one goal.

It was Paul who shocked Australian sports fans on the weekend when he told ESPN that Simmons was "doubtful" to play for Australia at the World Cup in August and September.

"I think I want to work on everything and continue to let my game grow", Simmons said at the end of the season. He wrapped up the regular season by appearing in 79 games, averaging just under 35 minutes-per-game.

And fortunately for all parties involved, Simmons will be afforded an opportunity to do so around the same starting five for at least the next three seasons. He is 0-for-17 in his career from the 3-point line and is a career 58% free-throw shooter. Both Simmons and Harris went to Los Angeles to work out together and Harris was amazed by the improvement.

The Sixers will have one of the most-expensive teams in National Basketball Association history moving forward, with Simmons, Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris and Al Horford all on big nine-figure contracts. He has yet to hit any of them.
