Jonathon Simmons scored 35 points on 13-of-18 shooting (1-of-2 3PTs, 8-of-9 FTs) with seven rebounds, five assists, four fouls, two steals, NINE turnovers and one block over 31 minutes in Tuesday’s Summer League win over the Sixers.
This is why we don’t flip out every time somebody has a good Summer League game. We love Simmons as a prospect but none of this translates or is applicable and it doesn’t tell us anything we already didn’t know. Put an athlete like him with skills that have been improving under Pop against this type of competition and it’s like putting a wolf in a hen house. Especially when he’s allowed to have nine turnovers.
