Simmons can lead the break in transition and make decisions on the fly as a point guard, but when it comes time to settle down and get into the halfcourt, Fultz can lead as a maestro with the screen, consistently getting into NBA 2K MT the teeth of the defense and dishing to his teammates. He'll space the floor with his terrific shooting ability for Joel Embiid's post game, as well as for Simmons' mid-post slashing game.

Defense is certainly a concern for Fultz, but he couldn't have found a better partner than Embiid to cover up for his weaknesses. Fultz is at his best on that end as something of an instinctual gambler, a player who takes risks getting into passing lanes and then trying to utilize his recovery speed to make up for it. And realistically, that's when he's giving effort, because far too often at Washington he got caught napping at the point of attack. But with Embiid inside (and Robert Covington on the wing wreaking havoc with his active hands), Fultz will have the perfect security blanket. The 76ers had what would have been the best defense in the NBA with the Cameroonian 7-footer on the floor last year, allowing just 99.1 points per 100 possessions, per NBA.

In large part, that has to do with Embiid's rim protection, as opponents shot just 40.8 percent at the rim against him the best mark in the league. It's worth noting that this all happened in a small, 31-game sample where Embiid didn't play back-to-backs, but it seems clear he's a high-end defender, and one who should help Fultz.

These are all complementary pieces to one another, something that seemed extremely difficult to accomplish just a year ago when the 76ers selected Simmons. The 6-10 power forward presented quite a few challenges in how to maximize his abilities, due to his lack of rim protection, floor spacing and the need to buy 2K MT Coins have the ball in his hands. But just a year later, it's incredible how things have come together with players on similar timelines to one another.With Embiid, the Sixers seem to have the sweet-shooting, rim-protecting center needed to pair with Simmons.
