Ben Simmons, who went No. 1 overall to the 76ers, wore a conservative, well-tailored blue suit, accented with a gold tie. He furthered the corporate-shark look by barely pausing to acknowledge a cameraman who had fallen backwards while filming the LSU product arriving at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

These are only some of the outfits that the 2016 NBA Draft players has shown, what do you think of their styles?
