Anfernee Tyrik Simons (born June 8, 1999 in Altamonte Springs , Florida ) is an American basketball player .


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 spring 2018, he announced his decision to forego going to a university, contrary to earlier considerations, and to switch to a professional position. Since he was 19 years old at the time of the June 2018 NBA draft proceedings and had graduated from high school a year ago, he met the rules even without attending college.

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.
