Ben Simmons didn’t offer many details, but told reporters he plans to “expand” his game this summer.

The 22-year-old acknowledged that he needs to develop his jumper, and punish defenses for sagging off of him.

One suspects Simmons will take different stance on the need to shoot three-pointers.

Per Philly.com:

Does he think he needs to be able to shoot from outside the paint?

“Yes.”

Does he think he needs to get to a point where he attempts more than five shots in a playoff Game 7?

“Yes.”

Is his plan still to spend the summer working on that shot with his brother Liam, a former small-school collegiate basketball player and assistant coach?

“Yes.”

Hey, the guy has never been long on words.
