Ben Simmons moves to U.S

Found this article on internet about Simmons having a chance of being the number 1 recruit in the class of 2015. (Sorry if it's a double up)

http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/blog/eye-on-college-basketball/21486963/ben-simmons-moves-to-us-from-australia-no-1-in-2015

Future is looking great for Australian basketball based on the below:
Dante Exum - Rank 17th in the class of 2014 (Rivals)
Ben Simmons - A possible number 1 ranking in the class of 2015
Thon Maker - A possible number 1 ranking in the class of 2016

No chance he chooses to play for the US if he has eligibility, plays well enough and they want him, right? Sure hope not.

But nonetheless, a good group of prospects coming through. Hopefully they all pan out and can get into the green and gold while Mills, Ingles and Bogut have something left in the tank.

Simmons & Exum have already played for Australia so they're locked in for us right?

Could see both making our next Olympic team.

There's an article on nbamate or something with an interview of him and they ask him about the olympics and he said it would be a dream to be playing for the boomers at Rio or something like that.

They asked him his fav nba players as well and he said durant, lebron and patty mills lol

Both kids are Aussies through and through. We aren't talking about Kyrie Irving here. Both kids have grown up in Australia, unlike Irving.

Simmons and Exum bleed green and gold...and plus they have played for Australia in a FIBA sanctioned event previously so are tied to Australia!

Hopefully some good times ahead...
