Ben Simmons On Snapchat: ‘You Can Catch Me On The Lakers Next Year’
Ben Simmons On Snapchat: ‘you Can Catch Me On The Lakers Next Year’
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Most fans of the Los Angeles Lakers are hoping to see a big improvement this season compared to last year, but if that doesn’t happen, there is a light at the end of the tunnel in top prospect Ben Simmons.

The LSU forward has drawn comparisons to LeBron James due to his size, athleticism, and playmaking ability.

Simmons will surely be one of the top two picks in the draft next season, and apparently he already has an idea of where he will be headed. Simmons posted on Snapchat that fans will be able to catch him on the Lakers next season via The Big Lead:

The Lakers still owe their draft pick to the Philadelphia 76ers via the Steve Nash trade of 2012. The only way the team retains the pick is if it lands in the top three.

Simmons clearly believes the Lakers will be one of, if not, the worst team in the NBA this season hence why he sees himself with them next year. The Lakers organization, however, is likely not expecting that same finish.

talented kid.. we will see what happens as far as him possibly ending up on the lakers. he’s a SF at 6’10, really?

  • talented kid.. we will see what happens as far as him possibly ending up on the lakers. he’s a SF at 6’10, really?

  • If any of you guys follow this kid on social media, he does hint out the Lakers all the time. He had a tweet saying he’s always worn purple and gold. He also favorited a tweet some fan sent him about joining the Lakers backcourt. He also was wearing a Magic Johnson jersey a few weeks ago. So I do believe he wants to be in LA.

    I’d love to add Simmons, but I just don’t think it’s realistic this year that we’ll be able to keep our pick from the Sixers. I don’t believe our record will be as bad as last year, unless everyone gets injured again for another season.

  • Lakers lose their pick to the Suns if it falls outside the top 3. That’s part of their Steve Nash trade. And 2017, I think, goes to the Magic.

  • lose it to the sixers if it’s outside the top three. and the ’17 pick goes to the magic.

  • No way we are going to be that bad to get our #1 pick back from the Tankers. We’d have to land in the top-3, and Simmons is going #1. Unless the NBA gives us the #! like they’ve done for the Cavs post LeBron to Miami, but judging from how the game was officiated last game.. NBA isn’t looking to do us any favors.

    But if we did have the luck of the ping-pong balls and got the 0.1% chance of moving up… I’d give the kid his wish.

  • The worst thing he could say is that he wants to go to the Lakers…..Others teams will make sure that doesn’t happen…..The Lakers becoming a threat again is Scary news for a lot of teams in the NBA.

  • Soo maybe in like 5-6 years when his rookie deal is up he can join us cuz I really doubt we suck so much we keep our pick. Assuming he takes his qualifying offer and blah blah blah

  • The odds aren’t in favor of the Lakers keeping the pick, but they weren’t in their favor last year to get #2. And the math was certainly not in favor of the Cavs getting #1 3 out of 4 years. You just never know 😉

  • Don’t get me wrong I would love it if we somehow ended up with him, even if we obtain him through being a real crappy team this year it would be worth it in the long run. Something to fantasize about but I’m not counting on us losing 60+ games and getting lucky in the draft lotto

  • I don’t think the Lakers are going to suck sufficiently in order to draft him. Is there a loophole where he doesn’t declare for the draft, instead goes to an open tryout for a DLeague team and can be called up after a certain time period by any NBA team and he has the choice? Obviously it will be a huge salary hit for him, but if you really want to choose the team you join rather than get stuck playing for the 76ers, it may be a good way to go. Or make it known that you have no intention of signing with any other team than the Lakers, enter the draft, get drafted by the 76ers, don’t play for them, join a European team until they trade your rights. Either way, good luck Ben Simmons playing for the 76ers next season.

    Our problem is with the coaching staffs, no the talent.

  • Right – worst record and then get bounced out of the top 3 by the ping pong balls.
    This year, develop the kids, don’t worry about making the playoffs, keep Kobe healthy so he goes out standing, and pray for those bouncing balls.

  • Honestly it would be the best thing to happen. Lakers really need to keep that pick. You bring in one of the top 2 or 3 college kids, and factor in all the money we will have once Mamba is off the books. Lakers could be a solid team in a few seasons.

  • I think it’s the other way around; if the pick 3 or higher than Lakers get to keep it.

  • It would be great if we get the 8th seed and win the lottery, highly improbable but great.

  • Nope. We only get to keep it if it is 1, 2 or 3. If it is any higher it goes to Phili. It is a top 3 protected pick.

  • Can’t lose either way. The only thing is I wouldn’t count on Durant, I mean maybe we had a better chance before Stephen A. Smith broke the news and tried to beef with KD, but also I’m sure KD would want to go to a ready made team. Unless, the Lakers show signs of one or two pieces away from contending for a title, I doubt we’ll be able to sign him. Every player now a days only go to teams if they’re a piece away from winning it all, not sure if we’re there yet. We’ll just have to wait and see what our group can put together this season.

  • Here’s what gonna happen: Just before the draft Simmons has an “accident” and breaks his legs. Everybody passes on him and he falls into our lap. Meanwhile Byron is cleaning some red stuff off his golf clubs…

I cant believe some of the people who already want to tank, or they think we can easily land simmons just by tanking, one loss and people start talking a bunch of nonsense .

  • I think keeping the pick is more possible than people think. The Lakers as of now seem like they range around the bottom 5 or so.
    Maybe not the #1 pick, but top 3 is very possible imo.

    idiots here fall for the whole “tanking” thing, its not tanking if you suck and can’t win games. we’re going through our rebuild, you play your young lots of minutes, you develop them and that will most likely lead to many losses and its not like guys like freaking brandon bass can lead us to a title anyway

    I admit that he would FIT PERFECTLY(Dlo-JC-Simm-Randle-Hibbert) but Lakers wont tank unless 3-5 of our core players(starters+lou,swag)

    He can always come to LA especially in the next 10 yrs(assuming he became a star)

  • I just watched the stinkfest that was the 76ers and I can tell you right now, the Lakers may have passed up on some other talent later in the draft, but Okafor is incredibly average. Also watching Jeremy Lin stink up the floor for the Hornets, the Lakers most certainly lost nothing there.

  • Mike dantoni made Kendall Marshall look like a decent player, imagine what he could do for Russell

  • we could have had a second unit front court of Upshaw, Nance JR, Black and Bass. Actual defense and rebounding. hustle. BUT STUPID BS WANTS TO PERSIST WITH KELLY SCRUB WHO CAN’T REBOUND, PLAY D OR SHOOT EVEN SHOOT EFFICIENTLY. I AM SO FREAKIN PISSED OFF RIGHT NOW.

  • Please tell me again Byron why we don’t need Upshaw? Man, we have an idiot as a coach.

  • The Lakers have no offensive system. This is why they should have drafted Okafor. They need a system and he could have brought that.

  • kobe not playing like SF. the whole idea was to let russell handle the ball with kobe getting set up for elbow shots and cuts. he just keeps chucking 3s. i’ve lost hope. i think kobe is doing this just for fun. kobe has no intention to win anymore,.

  • If we end up tanking and get the #1 that would be crazy even if we tank for top 3 Brandon Ingram from Duke is a beast also!

  • Not even KAT, some draft classes are better than other draft classes.

  • I hate to say it but it’s time for Kobe to retire. He keeps shooting 3s. I don’t think he’s capable of mid range anymore

  • Nope.. I mean Okafor. People were raving about Okafor 2+ years before College. Calling him the next elite big man, next Duncan, etc.

  • I’ll give him vets minimum if he wants to stay. Just for the respect lol

  • Kobe can’t get to the elbow. Everybody is on the perimeter on offense. Nobody is moving without the ball. They have no post game or spacing. Kobe can’t get to the paint without the ball.

  • Debatable when you have guys that can be more efficient. Our best player against the Wolves was Randle with 15pts and 11 rebounds

  • Probably going to see Sacre! Hibbert, Bass with three fouls and Black on his way.

  • too many Sac Layups, where is D guards – Kobe may end up doing 36 min, need Kobe. Keep Sweet Lou, the D’lo Project is what, 2-9? Hope Black shows why Lakes want to keep him on roster, Love Bass

  • can’t wait for Larry Nance’s return. Nance will bring the hustle and rebounding that Kelly scrub lacks.

  • please dude. he shot 34 through his first two seasons. he can’t defend on the perimeter or the paint. he can’t shoot efficiently. he’s a freakin scrub.

  • Kelly leads team in blocks and steals but is blamed for our defensive woes. Y’all are racist.

  • Man some of the blame goes to the players. Scrubs are scrubs for a reason.

  • People blaming individuals for our bad playing. But to me no one besides Nick Young and Clarkson played well. Russel is too quiet right now. And Kobe, man… I love Kobe but the way he`s playing are really make me mad

  • IDK about that lol. At least 76ers play defense. It’s a win-win situation from them. We win they get our pick & their pick. We lose they can still get our pick lol

  • Kelly is not to be under basket, as our Primary Defender. I like kelly as a big Forward Defender. I see Kelly’s passion, thats why he is taking 3’s, but against a team that is shooting 57% !!

  • Kelly also leading team in plus/minus. Terrible game but definitely not because of one player. And if it is, it isn’t him.

  • ideal small ball unit should be:

    Randle – Nance Jr – MWP – Clarkson – Russell

  • I’m not sure Scott has a system in place. Looks like unorganized ball playing. I see more organized games at Venice beach. Okay bring in Thibs or Mark Jackson like now.

  • I`m done with Byron. We show no system. For less than this Mike Brown was fired. Byron is a good guy, i really like him. But his system is not as explosive like D`antoni was, and is not as good defensively like Thibb.

  • Oh come one Swaggy? His defense needs work but at least he has some offensive game. I would say a scrub is someone who has zero game on both ends.

    Yeah you can handpick better scrub, but blame does not go to one person. Its not like if you replace Scott this team ends up win back 2 back championships. A lot of factors too takes place.

  • Is the clarkson fad over? how’s that pick working out? Kobe 0 for 7 from three? lol.

  • Still win-able, down 24 pts. Stop paint scoring, on D. Get offense going. That is 12 or so baskets down. Come on Byron, step up the third quarter

  • Kobe 4/10 and 1/7 on 3 s and absolutely no D and running away does not want body contact 3 TO COUSINS stole the ball from him, he is just to slow, he can not D RUDY GAY

  • guys who shoot less than 40 per cent are scrubs too. go glance at swaggy’s career numbers

  • The Lakers should have drafted Okafor and that has nothing to do with Russell. It has to do with the fact that they have no offensive system or balance. That affects the defense as well especially in transition. Okafor would have posted up and set the tempo. They have been able to get spacing and open shots. Right now everybody stands on the perimeter and goes one on one. THAT IS WHY KOBE IS SHOOTING SO MANY 3’s!!!

  • Everybody is having monster performences already except your boy Russell.
