Pros:

Solid shooter
Decent scorer off the dribble
Solid playmaker
Solid rebounder for his size
Decent defender
Above average athlete

Cons:

Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Just now is a good outside shooter
Can struggle against length and athleticism

A bit undersized for his position

Summary:

K.J. Simpson is an agile, skilled point guard that is having a good season at Colorado. He can score in a variety of ways and can reliably run the point, but his lack of size or ideal physical tools could limit his upside. He could project well into a backup point guard at the NBA level.
