Ben Simmons has been one of the NBA's least-willing shooters since getting taken No. 1 overall out of LSU by the Philadelphia 76ers.

It appears that Simmons is going to attempt to change that in 2019-20.

Simmons has been working on his jump shot this offseason and is actually starting to use it during pickup games.

The latest video of Simmons' shot is certainly encouraging.

Of course, the only thing that matters is Simmons doing this in an actual NBA game, and not just some summer pickup run.

Still, it's clear that Simmons is getting more confident in his jumper. The shots he's taking in the video above aren't the kind of set shots he often takes in warmups. They're in-rhythm jumpers that could actually work in an NBA game.

Will we see any of this in 2019-20?

Sixers fans surely can't wait to find out.
