How the Nets can use Ben Simmons with the 2022-23 roster

No matter what happens with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, Ben Simmons is almost guaranteed to be a fundamental part of the Nets.

While the ongoing drama surrounding Durant’s trade demand — and Irving’s uncertain status — has sucked all the air out of the room and topped nearly every headline this offseason, the under-the-radar X factor for the Nets is bringing Simmons back. from May. surgery and in the right headspace.

Whether it’s a title hunt or the start of a rebuild.

Simmons was the centerpiece of the Nets’ comeback for trading former MVP James Harden in February – they also got Seth Curry, Andre Drummond and two 76ers first-round picks – and he didn’t play a single second for them. Simmons was first unavailable in Philadelphia last season due to mental health issues, then was sidelined in Brooklyn with a herniated disc.
