Cedric
Simmons
BC Kalev/Cramo Tallinn (Alexela KML) re-signed 31-year old Bulgarian ex-international power forward Cedric Simmons (206-107kg-86, college: North Carolina State). He has a double citizenship as he also holds American passport. Simmons played there last season. He managed to play in three leagues last year (!!!). In 23 Alexela KML games he averaged 10.1ppg, 6.1rpg, 1.7apg and 1.1bpg. Simmons helped them to win the league title (twice) and the cup (also twice). He can count that season as a very successful as was selected to Eurobasket.com All-Estonian League 2nd Team. Simmons also played 8 games in Baltic League where he had 10.4ppg, 7.8rpg, 2.3apg and 1.6bpg. He contributed to his team making it to the semifinals. And finally Simmons contributed to 16 games in VTB United League where he recorded 9.1ppg, 6.1rpg and 1.1apg. Simmons also spent pre-season at Buducnost (Erste Liga) in Montenegrin league that year.
In 2006 he was drafted by New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets (NBA) in first round (15th overall). Simmons attended North Carolina State and it will be his twelfth (!!!) season in pro basketball.
He also represented Bulgaria at the Qualifications to European Championships 2013 five years ago. His stats at that event were 8 games: 10.4ppg, 8.3rpg, 1.3bpg, FGP: 57.1%, FT: 53.3%.
Simmons is a very experienced player. And here thanks to pro basketball he experienced life in eight different countries playing on three different continents. He is familiar with European, Asian and of course North American leagues. Simmons has played previously professionally in China (Leopards), Greece (Peristeri GS Athens, Olympiacos and Kavala), Israel (Maccabi Fox Tel-Aviv), Italy (Enel Brindisi), Spain (Movil Estudiantes and Real Betis), Turkey (Gaziantep), NBA (Sacramento Kings) and NBA G League (Salt Lake City Stars).
Let's have closer look into His outlook: (by Aran Smith for NBADraft.net in 2006)
Tremendous shot blocker due to his huge wingspan (7'4") and quick leaping ability ... Disruptive and active defensively ... Has the size to play center and power forward on the next level ... Uses back to the basket post moves and is showing great progress in his ability to score posting up ... Has developed an effective jump hook ... Displays solid toughness inside. Does not shy away from contact ... Plays hard, good energy ...
Lacks great range and a consistent jump shot from any distance ... Offensive game is still a work in progress ... Shows excellent flashes, but lacks any real go-to moves
