Simons played basketball at Edgewater High School in Orlando , graduated there and then moved to IMG Academy in Bradenton for the 2017/18 season .

In the 2018 NBA Draft , he was called in the first selection round in a total of 24th place by the Portland Trail Blazers . In the 2018/19 season, his playing time was limited, he received 48 of his 141 minutes of play in the NBA (spread over 20 games) in the season final game, when the main players in Portland were spared. Simmons averaged 3.8 points per encounter. Even in the colors of the Agua Caliente Clippers in the NBA G-League , Simons only played 91 minutes over the course of the season.
