Ben Simmons, Jimmy Butler are bonding in Philadelphia

Jimmy Butler

Jimmy Butler seems to be bedding in nicely in Philadelphia.

According to 76ers head coach Brett Brown, Butler has taken teammate Ben Simmons under his wing defensively at the coach’s request. However, the pairing seems to be hitting it off — according to Brown, the duo even wore matching headbands on Friday night.

Butler has made his share of on-court contributions early on for his new team, but if he’s helping mentor some of the team’s younger talent, that’s a huge bonus and probably exactly what the Sixers had in mind when acquiring him. It turns out that chatter was right — he’s a great teammate as long as he’s happy with his situation.
