Ben Simmons told reporters he is excited to get back on the court with Joel Embiid.

Philadelphia finally has a big reason to be excited about their Sixers. Simmons has all of the potential in the world to win Rookie of the Year and become a multi-time All-Star and eventually a superstar in this league. And if Embiid can stay healthy and capitalize on his immense potential, the pair could end up becoming one of the better big men duos in the NBA. Simmons can get to the bucket and finish with both hands at the rim while Embiid's offensive skills are very raw, but he can clean up misses with rebounding in addition to controlling the paint on the defensive side.

Hassan Whiteside plans on making his free-agency decision on July 1.

Despite plenty of weaknesses, Whiteside's superior defense and rebounding has made him one of the hottest free agents in Summer '16. It seems like the Heat and the Lakers are the top potential landing spots for the big man, who averaged 14.2 points, 11.8 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game in 2015-16. Whiteside, who is also being courted by the Mavericks, Blazers and Warriors among others, is excited to be one of the top five free agents this summer. "I find it flattering, because in my past, I was trying to call those teams and now it's the other way around," said Whiteside. "It's a flattering experience and I'm thankful for this opportunity."

Michael Conforto went 1-for-3 in first game with Triple-A Las Vegas.

In his first game since being demoted from the Mets, Conforto tallied a single but that's it. Barring any injuries to their other outfielders, it doesn't look like Conforto will be coming back to the bigs anytime soon as he struggled with a .222/.296/.431 slug line with just 30 RBI (including 63 Ks to just 22 BBs).

Yunel Escobar was diagnosed with a bone bruise on his left knee.

Escobar hasn't been on the field since suffering the injury on Thursday, but he is still not a candidate to hit the DL, according to manager Mike Sciosia. “He’s making slow progress,” Scioscia said. “We’ll just have to keep reading it. Obviously if it gets out to the sixth, seventh, eighth day, you’re going to start to see where the balance is. But, right now, hopefully he’s going to make progress and be available.” Escobar is the top trading chip for this struggling Angels team so it is in their best interest to make sure he is healthy and on the field as much as possible with his .310/.359/.409 slug line.

Yu Darvish (elbow), who threw a bullpen session on Sunday, is scheduled to throw a simulated game Wednesday in New York, which is expected to last three Innings with 12-15 pitches each frame.

Darvish's bullpen on Sunday was the first time he had been on a mound since going on the DL on June 9 with shoulder soreness. After coming back from Tommy John surgery on May 28, the 29-year-old made three start before finding himself back n the DL. Following the 30-pitch bullpen session, the Rangers are hopeful Darvish can return before the All-Star break. Although the Rangers have been one of the best teams in baseball, Derek Holland and Colby Lewis both hit the DL last week so they are in need of getting Darvish and his 2.87 ERA and 19 strikeouts in 2016 with him.
