    Perfect example of a kid who needed to stay at least two years in college.

      Bingo. It didn’t help that they changed the rule about undrafted players going back to college right after he left either.

        Nah. He had loads of potential! He’s more of a scoring two guard but the grizz wanted him to run as a playmaker

      I think he is a lot better than he looked like he was going to be in college, and has a better chance of being a rotation player

        Would love for the Bulls to pick him up, and most likely cut a guy like Arciadono…

        Simmons could be a future solid combo guard, and definitely has some potential to be a spark plug off the bench..
