Brandon Brooks hooks up Ben Simmons and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot with Eagles jerseys


Luwawu-Cabarrot isn't exactly the easiest fit on the back of a shirt. Still, Eagles' guard Brandon Brooks presented the French swingman and No. 1 pick Ben Simmons with their own Birds jerseys. He's pictured in this Sixers Instagram post along with Christian Crosby, the team's in-arena host, who's posing between the two draft picks. Apparently we'll have to wait a little longer to get a glimpse of Turkish sharpshooter extraordinaire Furkan Korkmaz.

Brooks helped show the duo the best Philly has to offer, as he gave the Sixers' newest additions a tour around the city.

You've got to be a big fan of the nickname Brooks bestowed on the 24th pick — who doesn't love a little TLC? It's definitely preferable to trying to choke out Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot in an impeccable French accent. Ben Simmons, however, remains nickname-less. The Awesome Aussie?
