Sims agreed to a summer league deal with the Nets on Sunday, Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders reports.
Sims finished the season with the Nets and saw some more extended run over the final two weeks while Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young were shut down for rest, averaging 6.5 points and 5.1 rebounds across 18.8 minutes per game in his 14 total appearances. While he helped get the Nets to the end of a listless season, the team wasn't willing to commit to him for 2016-17, so he'll have to prove himself in summer league. If Sims fares well in the exhibitions, he could earn an invite to the training camp, but may again face another uphill battle toward earning a roster spot.
Henry Sims will move to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Wizards, David Kharpertian of YES Network reports.
With Bojan Bogdanovic returning from a two-game absence, the Brooklyn Nets will go with a bit of an unconventional lineup. Shane Larkin will remain the starting point guard, but coach Lionel Hollins will go with all three of Wayne Ellington, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, and Bogdanovic at shooting guard, small forward and power forward, respectively. Sims will move to the bench, while Thomas Robinson shifts up to the center spot. Of course, both Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young have been shut down for the season to rest.
Henry Sims is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pelicans, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Sims, as well as Thomas Robinson are expected to start Sunday's game, as the Brooklyn Nets have shut down Brook Lopez (rest) and Thaddeus Young (rest) for the rest of the season. Sims and Robinson are likely the favorites to start the last six games of the year, so look for both to see elevated roles moving forward. Sims struggled in his last start against the Cavaliers on Thursday, notching just four points (0-3 FG, 4-6 FT) and four rebounds over 19 minutes, so he has yet to show himself as a quality fantasy player. Either way, with his role expected to increase, he's a player to keep an eye on.
Henry Sims will get the start against the Cavaliers on Thursday night, Brian Lewis of New York Post reports.
Sims will start in place of Brook Lopez, who is taking the night off in order to rest. It will be his first start with the Brooklyn Nets , who he signed with just over two weeks ago. He may split time with Thomas Robinson, who returns to the bench after starting in Tuesday's loss to the Magic for the resting Thaddeus Young.
Sims has played in four games since signing his first 10-day contract with the Nets, averaging 4.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 0.3 assists over 13 minutes. He'll continue to serve as a depth option in the frontcourt, although his fantasy value will likely remain low until he can work his way up higher on the depth chart. Following the conclusion of his second 10-day contract, the Nets will either have to release Sims or sign him for the rest of the season.
