Australian NBA star Andrew Bogut says Ben Simmons will be the best Aussie to ever play in the NBA by the end of his career.

Speaking to SEN's Morning Glory on Friday, Bogut said Simmons has all the attributes to be one of the best players in the NBA.

"He's a young kid of course and has weaknesses he has to work on, but he's far ahead of the curve. He will be the number one pick, he's probably the most talented guy we've had in Australian history as a young fella to come over here with just his versatility," Bogut said.

"He can do so much with the ball, off the ball, very good passer, high IQ. I think when it's all said and done he'll be the number one Australian player to play in the NBA.

Simmons has received praise from all corners of the NBA world in America with his astonishing form for LSU in College basketball.
