Anfernee Simons

Anfernee Simons is one of the better young scorers in the NBA. He's been with the Portland Trail Blazers his entire career and has proven himself to be a reliable scorer. Over his last four years, he's averaged nearly 40 points over the league-average true shooting percentage for a point guard. He's put up back-to-back 20-point games and is shooting 43% from the floor and 38% from three.

He's shown himself to be a very reliable and very efficient scorer. He's gotten better as a primary ball-handler, especially after Damian Lillard got traded from the Blazers last offseason, but Simons still isn't someone you'd want to have the ball for that long. He has a high turnover rate, and his passing isn't where you want him to be at this point in his career.

But man, can he score? He's a nice compliment to the Utah Jazz if Keyonte George and Kris Dunn are the primary guards for next season. He's not someone you want on the team if you're keeping Collin Sexton. Now, Sexton is the better overall player but if you're going to move Sexton, then you should go get Simons to fill that spot in the rotation.

Simons does have issues on defense, which is why it's best not to have Sexton, George, and Simons on the same roster.
