Ced City Traded to Kings

Our boy Ced City was involved in a 6-man trade on Wednesday that sent him from the Windy City to the Sacramento Kings. Drew Gooden, Michael Ruffin, Andres Nocioni, and Ced were sent to the West Coast in exchange for Brad Miller and John Salmons. Ced has seen action in 11 games this year for the Bulls, averaging 5.5 minutes per contest. He averaged 2.5ppg in the brief time that he played and shot an efficient 54% from the field. The Kings are looking to do an overhaul of their team and they made another trade before yesterday's trade deadline bringing in Rashad McCants and Calvin Booth from the Timberwolves and sending them Shelden Williams and Bobby Brown.

Cedric Simmons was drafted by the New Orleans Hornets as the 15th overall pick in the 2006 NBA draft. In his rookie season for the Hornets he played 12 minutes per game (43 games) and averaged 3 points and 3 rebounds per contest. Then in his sophomore campaign Ced started the season with the Hornets and ended his season with the Bulls. He played 14 games in the League between the two teams and averaged 6 minutes per game. Ced also played 9 games in the NBA Development league during the 07-08 season with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers and the Iowa Energy. He was rejuvenated in the D-League averaging 13.3ppg, 6.3rpg and 2.9bpg.

With Ced landing in Sacramento, he is now playing for his 4th NBA team and for his third season in the League. Hopefully landing in Sacramento will help jump start his career. The Kings boast the worst record in the NBA which might be a sign that Ced will get to see more minutes and prove his worth. We've always been die-hard Ced City fans and we would love to see him have a successful career in the NBA. Do your thing Ced!
