The 76ers have several players who on paper would appear to be ideal starting point guards for the squad this season. But, see, the way it works is, one starting guard plays PG. The other starting guard is more off the ball, and plays shooting guard. It’ll be interesting to see how the Sixers’ backcourt rotation develops, but as for now things look right now as training camp approaches, here’s CSN Philly:

Sixers coach Brett Brown reiterated Wednesday that he plans to use Ben Simmons as his point guard this season, while adding that Markelle Fultz will not be excluded from “decision-making and point guard-type of responsibilities” on occasion.

Brown also didn’t rule out using the 6-10 Simmons as a small-ball center.

Simmons and Fultz have been the top picks in each of the last two drafts, but Simmons missed last season while his broken right foot healed.

Simmons, who played a single season at LSU, is “an elite passer,” in Brown’s estimation, as well as a guy who has “jaw-dropping” speed.

Brown has also found that the 6-4 Fultz, selected after the Sixers engineered a trade with Boston for the most recent No. 1 choice, is very coachable. And his skill set is as advertised.
