Maybe MCW?

Kendall.

He improved his shot from what it was while he missed an entire year with injury. Shooting isn't something you can learn in one summer. Especially from 3, midrange, and FT. That is an unrealistic ask

I disagree. Inability to shoot outside of 8-feet, poor FT shooter, poor defender...  all glaring weaknesses to me. He was really exposed last year in the playoffs, figured it would've lit a fire under him to improve but I haven't seen much progress from last season yet. 

lol what? 

what is your idea of a good defender?

Watch the games

I have to agree.  I expected a bit more from what I've seen so far from Simmons.  As for the off season, work on your damn weaknesses! Improve your game and it will also reflect on the teams overall play as well.  Don't get me wrong, he is a beast but if he could of added a more confident mid range game along with a 3 pointer stroke, man, skies the damn limit for Simmons!

That is an unrealistic ask of a kid that needs to clean up his post play since that is where he has to operate. He isn't at the point of just focusing on weaknesses. He needs to improve everywhere. I would rather see him be a master at some than below average in most (we all know he isn't getting to average from the stripe, midrange, and 3 in one offseason).

Actually think they can improve... Jimmy can shoot. This move hurts embiid more than Simmons. Embiid usage will be down down down

 

No, it won't effect Embiid. You gotta account for the departure of Saric and Covington. We'll see what happens. Jimmy plays the 2 and 3 position.

Simmons cleaning up those Butler bricks = more rebounds

 

Simmons finding and dishing the ball off to Butler = more assists

 

Simmons finding himself in open lanes because opposing defenses have to account for Butler = more points.
