Ben Simmons told by 76ers he'll be selected No. 1 in NBA Draft

Is Ben Simmons headed to Philly? Sure seems so.

The Philadelphia 76ers seem to have made their decision for the No. 1 pick in Thursday's NBA draft.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst confirmed that the 76ers told Ben Simmons he will be selected by the team.

The LSU Tigers' forward hinted at the news via Instagram Tuesday with the caption "Trust the process."

Simmons and possible future teammate Joel Embiid also shared an interesting photo on their Instagram accounts late Tuesday afternoon.

Simmons, who has been hyped up as the potential No. 1 selection for over a year, finally worked out for the 76ers Tuesday.

Philly is keeping quiet about the pick, however.

The 76ers will make the No. 1 overall selection Thursday night for the first time since they took Allen Iverson in the 1996 NBA draft.
