Ben Simmons was in Philadelphia on Tuesday morning to work out for the 76ers.
The former Louisiana State power forward worked out for the Sixers at Philadelphia College of Osepathic Medicine, according to sources close to the player.
The Sixers probably will take the 6-foot-10, 242-pounder first in Thursday's NBA draft.
Simmons averaged 19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 2.0 steals this past season. He was an consensus first-team all-American and the United States Basketball Writers Association freshman of the year.
Early Monday afternoon, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Haynes reported that the 76ers have already told Simmons he'll be the No. 1 pick:
This morning Philadelphia 76ers informed camp of Ben Simmons he would be taken No. 1 in NBA Draft, league sources tell @clevelanddotcom.

76ers officials who spoke after Simmons' workout had no response to the report.
Simmons, however, might have offered a big hint in this Instagram post:
