The annual Ben Simmons is working on jumpers in offseason video is here – Sixers Wire

By now, everybody knows that the Philadelphia 76ers are currently shopping 25-year old All-Star guard Ben Simmons after a tough postseason for the young man. The Sixers are asking for a lot in any Simmons deal–as they should–but if they can’t get a deal done, they will need improvement out of him.

Simmons is as maddening as they come when it comes to the offensive end of the floor. Standing at 6-foot-10 and with a ton of skill, he continues to not be as aggressive on the offensive end as some believe he should be. He still refuses to take any jumpers and he shot a miserable 34.2% from the free-throw line in the 2021 postseason.

Simmons has been back in the gym working and his trainer Chris Johnson posted a video on his Instagram story of his progress. Fans are tired of seeing the same videos of him working on his jumper in the offseason, but the point still remains. If he can take this offseason work and carry it with him into the 2021-22 season, it changes everything for Philadelphia.

If the Sixers cannot find a fair price for Simmons, then they will bring back the embattled star and try again with him and Joel Embiid. It is not the worst thing in the world, but obviously, Simmons does have to come back with a jump shot. It is such a huge weapon that he can add to his offensive game.
