Amid questions from critics about his work ethic and character, the Philadelphia 76ers made Simmons the first pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. However, toward the end of training camp, Simmons broke a bone in his foot. He had hoped to only miss the first few months of the season, but when it was determined in February that the injury had yet to fully heal, Simmons was ruled out for the entire season.

 

While critics soured on Simmons after the injury forced him to sit out a full season, he hit the ground running during the 2017-18 season. He started 81 games for the 76ers, averaging 15.8 points, 8.2 assists, and 8.1 rebounds. Simmons led the 76ers to their best record since 2001 and became the fifth rookie to ever record a triple-double in the playoffs. He ultimately won Rookie of the Year Honors and was an All-Rookie First Team selection.

 

Simmons was just as good during the 2018-19 season. He averaged 16.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 7.7 assists per game, making the All-Star Team for the first time and once again leading Philadelphia to the Eastern Conference Semifinals. After the season, he signed a five-year, $170 million extension with the 76ers. Simmons made the All-Star Team again in 2020.

 

At the time the 2019-20 season was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic, Simmons was averaging 16.7 points, 8.2 assists, and 7.8 rebounds per game.
