The San Antonio Spurs renounced their rights on a restricted free agent, Jonathon Simmons. Thus making him one of the best remaining unrestricted free agents on the market. Simmons has all the tools to be a great player in this league, but as of right now he is a raw talent with a great amount of upside. Best case scenario, Simmons could become an All-Defensive Team quality player in a few years with his hustle and length.
After more than 10 days of waiting, Jonathon Simmons surprises everyone with his decision. He is not with the San Antonio Spurs anymore!
According to Shams Charania, Jonathon Simmons will sign a three-year contract with the Orlando Magic.
From Barber to baller, this Cinderella story is what the Spurs franchise is all about. They find the potential in the most unlikely places. Simmons spent $150 on a tryout that could have gone to buying essentials for his young daughters but that investment has turned into one of the best investments ever made.
