July 10 (The Sports Xchange) - Ben Simmons, already looking ahead to next season as the Philadelphia 76ers' starting point guard, is excited about the team's new additions.

Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball will sit out Monday's Las Vegas Summer League game against the Sacramento Kings with a groin injury, multiple outlets reported.

The injury isn't considered serious for Ball, but his expected absence puts a damper on a matchup that would've featured two of the top five picks of this year's draft. Ball was the second overall pick and De'Aaron Fox was taken No. 5 overall by the Kings.
