In an article a few weeks back, we told you that it was looking like former Wolfpack center and first round draft pick, Ced Simmons, would be heading across the pond to Greece, where he'd play with Peristeri.
We have now gotten word that Ced may not being going over to Greece after all. According to TheHoop blog, Peristeri is looking into nulling Simmons' contract due to a sprained ankle that has kept him out of the last three days of practice. Their argument is that Simmons is not "fit to play" as advertised. They are already looking for a replacement. This is sadly, another bump in the road for Simmons who has been a true NBA journeyman his first few seasons in the league. Ced, in three years, has already played for four teams (New Orleans, Cleveland, Chicago and Sacramento) and is not looking at his options overseas. Simmons is a truly talented basketball players with great athleticism and a good head. We believe he will certainly find his niche and get his career on the right path in the near future. We'll keep you updated with this situation as best we can.
