And so it ends, not with a bang, but with a scritch-scratch on a contract. Cedric Simmons’ once-promising college career is over – he signed with an agent. Considering how weak this draft is, I can’t really blame Simmons. I would have been surprised if he returned, no matter how horribly unprepared for the NBA he may be. I mean, is Simmons really farther along than Josh Powell was a few years ago? They were very similar players, but I think Powell had a more refined offensive game. It took Powell three seasons to finally stick in the league. Fortunately for Simmons, he’ll probaby be drafted in the first round and thus be guaranteed to get paid for at least three years (unless I misunderstand those rookie contracts).
