Ben Simmons has been used almost exclusively in the power forward position during the Philadelphia 76ers practices in Orlando.

As head coach Brett Brown confirmed, Simmons is going to play in the power forward, with Shake Milton slipping into the starting five to become the starting point guard of the team.

Simmons commented on his new role, saying “he is having fun”, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The NBA season restarts on July 30, but the 22 teams will play three scrimmages before officially starting the season.
