Bryan Colangelo joins The Vertical Podcast

While on The Vertical Podcast with Woj this week, new Sixers president Bryan Colangelo heaped praise on No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons.

Citing Simmons’ “immense talent level” and “possibility for greatness,” Colangelo said the team sees him as a Hall of Fame talent.

“Hopefully over the next five to 10 years, we’ll all be part of that same growth of him becoming a great basketball player, and becoming a Hall of Fame type of player,” Colangelo said around the 22:17 mark in the podcast.

“Does he have it in him? I think he does. Does he have some work to do? Absolutely.”
