Yes, you did read that correctly! FaZe Clan has announced that NBA superstar Ben Simmons has joined as an official member of the team. Well, in a certain capacity anyway, as he will be acting as an investor and brand ambassador for the esports organisation.
Commenting on the newfound partnership, Simmons said: "Gaming is an important part of my life, and so it was a natural progression to personally invest in this industry. FaZe Clan represents the pinnacle of the gaming culture, and I am really looking forward to connecting with new fans around the globe."
Do you think that this is a slam dunk move for FaZe Clan?
