Original master and master talk
Liaoning signed two foreign aids in a row! On October 8, Beijing time, according to a well-known domestic reporter Song Xiang, Liaoning has reached a contract extension agreement with foreign aid Mayo. During the offseason this year, the Liaoning Men's Basketball Team used the right of priority to renew the contract with foreign aid against Mayo. In the 2019-20 regular season, Mayo averaged 28.4 points, 7.1 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.5 steals, shooting 57% from the field and 43.5% from three points.
On the same day, according to The Athletic reporter Anthony Slater, Jonathan Simmons will sign a contract with the CBA Liaoning Men’s Basketball Team. J-Simons is 31 years old this year, 1.98 meters tall, and works as a small forward. He has strong physical fitness and fierce defense! He has played for the Spurs, Magic and 76ers, played 258 regular season games in his career, averaging 8.3 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game.
据《体育报》记者安东尼·斯拉特（Anthony Slater）称，当天，乔纳森·西蒙斯（Jonathan Simmons）将与CBA辽宁男子篮球队签订合同。 J-Simons今年31岁，高1.98米，是一名小前锋。他身体强壮，防守能力强！他曾为马刺，魔术和76人队效力，职业生涯打过258场常规赛，场均贡献8.3分，2.4个篮板和1.9次助攻。
Although they played for the 76ers, this Simmons is not Pi Simmons. For the sake of convenience, Simmons in this article refers only to Jonathan Simmons. He and Mayo met in the Liaoning team, but their growth trajectories were quite different. Simmons participated in the 2012 draft, but no one cared about it. The static talent is mediocre, and it is a 23-year-old senior show, no team can see Simmons.
尽管他们为76人队效力，但此席梦思不是Pi Simmons。为了方便起见，本文中的西蒙斯仅指乔纳森·西蒙斯。他和梅奥在辽宁队相识，但他们的成长轨迹却大不相同。 Simmons参加了2012年选秀，但没人关心它。静态人才平庸，这是一个23岁的高级表演，没有团队可以看到席梦思。
In the following two seasons, he began to mix in the Development League and the Summer League, hoping to attract the attention of NBA teams one day. The effort paid off. In the summer of 2015, when he won the Summer League Finals MVP, the Spurs signed Simmons. At this time, he was 26 years old and finally ushered in his NBA debut.
There are many players like Simmons in the NBA. They can be seen in the summer league every year, just to get a short contract. These players are true dream catchers. The Spurs' contract to Simmons is $1.4 million for two years, which is at the bottom of the league. In the 2015-16 season, he represented the Spurs in 55 regular season games, averaging 6.0 points and 1.7 rebounds per game.
In the 2016-17 regular season, Simmons averaged 6.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists for the Spurs and 10.5 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists in the playoffs. In the Western Conference finals between the Spurs and the Warriors, Simmons averaged 15.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists. Think about his annual salary of hundreds of thousands, this kind of data is simply amazing!
Simmons' outstanding performance caused at least 12 teams to compete. On July 15, 2017, the Orlando Magic gave him a three-year, $20 million contract. The annual salary of others is increasing, but his salary is decreasing. The salaries for these three years were 6.3 million, 6 million and 5.7 million U.S. dollars, and the guaranteed annual salary in the last year was only 1 million U.S. dollars.
Similar to the annual salary, Simmons's performance in the Magic is also decreasing year by year. In the 2017-18 regular season, he averaged 13.9 points per game, his best performance of his career. Who could have imagined that his scoring average dropped to 6.9 points per game the following year. In February 2019, during the Fultz deal, Simmons was sent to Philadelphia, and the 76ers sent him to the Wizards five months later. In July 2019, Simmons bid farewell to the NBA after being waived.
类似于年薪，西蒙斯在魔术队中的表现也在逐年下降。在2017-18赛季常规赛中，他场均得到13.9分，这是他职业生涯中最好的表现。谁能想到他的得分平均值在第二年下降到6.9分。 2019年2月，在与福尔茨达成交易期间，席梦思被送到费城，而76人队五个月后将他送到奇才凤凰体育直播队。 2019年7月，席梦思被免除后告别NBA。
The ups and downs of life are so fast. Simmons' NBA career is too short. Of course, this is also the average length of an NBA player's career. In the most recent season, he joined the Santa Cruz Warriors of the Development League, averaging 19.6 points and 5.0 rebounds per game. Simmons also participated in the Warriors' mini training camp, and Cole praised him: "Simons still has the ability to play in the NBA for many years!"
According to Warriors and team reporter Connor Letourneau, the contract price between Simmons and Liaoning was so high that the players couldn't refuse! The Warriors were shocked by this signing. They wanted to sign Simmons to strengthen the team. The next junior or the next Mayo? Are you optimistic about Simmons' prospects in CBA?
