D’Marcus Simonds is an athletic, combo guard that can score the basketball. He currently plays at a small school for Georgia State. He will likely need to significantly improve his playmaking skills as well as in the finer points of the game, but if he can consistently play well against top notch competition, he could quickly move up draft boards.
