In a dramatic turn of events, NBA superstar Ben Simmons has joined FaZe Clan as an investor. However, his idea goes way beyond being just an investor. The Philadelphia 76ers star joins a long list of celebrities already associated with FaZe. With names like Pitbull, Jamal Murray, Offset, Simmons’ vision is surely well-placed and will go a long way. Ben has chosen “FaZe Simmo” as his organization moniker.
In his interview, he mentions he wants to bring in more kids into the mix. He also touches on the fact that he wants to put Australia back on the gaming map. The two-time NBA All-Star had flaunted FaZe colors long before he joined them.
FaZe Clan announced the news on Twitter. Although, none of the terms and conditions of his investment have been disclosed yet. This seems like an interesting move by FaZe. They are already one of the premier gaming organizations in the world, and this addition will only attract more youngsters to join them.
