Ben Simmons Wants To Meet With Magic Johnson This Off-season

76ers guard Ben Simmons is ready to meet up with Magic to improve his game this summer.

Los Angeles Lakers president told reporters Sunday before the matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers that Simmons "wants to sit down with him this summer to trade some 'big guard' secrets if the Sixers, Lakers and the league office all sign off," according to Marc Stein .

Johnson said he would for sure be willing to sit down with Simmons, but said that he would need approval from the Lakers, 76ers and the NBA before the two could meet this offseason because the league would hit the Lakers with a big penalty for tampering.

Simmons, 22, is currently averaging 16.9 points, 9.3 rebounds and 8 assists in 2018-19. He was named an All-Star for the first time in January.
