Ben Simmons: Net worth, salary and endorsements

Benjamin David Simmons or Ben Simmons was born in Melbourne, Australia on July 20, 1996. He was born to an American-born father, Dave, who played pro basketball in Australia.

As a youngster, Simmons was interested in Basketball and Football (Soccer as it is known in the US) in Australia. As a teenager, he eventually chose to concentrate on Basketball. At the age of 15, Simmons played basketball for Box Hill Senior Secondary College at the 2011 Australian Schools Championships before taking up a scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport in 2012. Later that year, Simmons made his first appearance in the United States at the renowned Pangos All-American Camp for basketball prospects.

After moving to the United Staes, Simmons played college basketball for one season with the Louisiana State University (LSU) Tigers, when he was named a consensus first-team All-American and the USBWA National Freshman of the Year. In 2016, Philadelphia 76ers drafted him with the first overall pick in the NBA draft that year. He became the third Melbourne-born number one overall pick (after Andrew Bogut and Kyrie Irving) in 11 years.
