Per a report Tuesday by Sports Illustrated's Jake Fischer, the Sixers are continuing to make calls about moving into the top five. There has still been no mention of exactly which prospect the Sixers are interested in trading up for since former Cavaliers GM David Griffin made the claim during a radio interview last week (see story). 10 and 26 in the first round, it makes sense that the Sixers would offer draft picks first in any potential trade.

Kendall Jenner has reportedly made things official with her new boyfriend, Philadelphia 76ers player Ben Simmons, who recently took the supermodel out on what most people would call "errands," but sources at Page Six are referring to as a date. Forget mailing letters at the post office, taking pets to the vet, picking up clothes from the dry cleaners, or even grocery-shopping at just any regular supermarket—on Sunday afternoon, Simmons took Jenner to a luxury health food store called Erewhon Market in Los Angeles. At this point, the only thing more official than a supermarket date with Jenner would be a homemade meal prepared by her chef of a sister and served up on a platter for her in the comfort of her own home.

The 76ers are trying to separate themselves from former team president Bryan Colangelo, who resigned last week in the aftermath of his wife admitting to running multiple burner Twitter accounts that advanced a pro-Colangelo message and ripped many other people (including current Philadelphia players). Beyond the lingering stench of the Twitter scandal, he made a franchise-altering move last summer. Under Colangelo, Philadelphia traded the No. 3 pick and a valuable future first-rounder to move up to the No. 1 pick and get Markelle Fultz.

The Spurs turned down an offer for Leonard from the Celtics in February and "remain resistant" to trading their superstar forward, per Wojnarowski. Head coach Gregg Popovich and Leonard are expected to meet "sooner than later" to see if repairs can be made to the relationship between the Spurs and their franchise player following a dramatic 2017-18 season. Battling a right quad injury Leonard only played nine games, didn't allow the Spurs to handle his medical and rehab treatment, and left the team completely in March.

Is Ben Simmons Adding a 3-Point Shot to His Game?

Source | 8 days ago.

For as good as Philadelphia 76ers rookie Ben Simmons' inaugural year in the NBA was, a campaign that could very well end with Rookie of the Year honors, there remains a glaring hole in his game: He doesn't really shoot. Simmons' lack of a jumper heavily contributed to the 76ers' demise in the Eastern Conference semifinals this past season when the Boston Celtics packed the paint and took away Simmons' driving lanes due to a lack of fear of him hurting them from the outside. Although there was an expectation that Simmons would spend much of the offseason working on his jumper, it appears the former LSU standout might want to take his range even farther out.
