Nets General Manager Sean Marks and Head Coach Jacque Vaughn held their annual preseason press conference on Tuesday and much of the discussion centered around Ben Simmons, the club’s much-maligned, highest-paid player. “What’s he up to? How’s he feeling? What position will he play?” Definitive answers to those questions won’t be known until Simmons actually performs on the court following another lengthy rehab on his ailing back.
I like Royce better with the starters than DFS. That unit is desperate for playmaking, which he brings a modicum of. I like DFS and Watford playing alongside Ben in a small ball unit.
