If anyone has NBA tv and is interested in how Deshawn Sims is looking, the Celtics and Pacers are playing in the Orlando Summer League on NBA tv right now. Sims is looking good through the first half. The announcers are high on him. They like his versatility, and also pointed out that he can finally play his "natural position". Being forced to play center last year held him back a little bit, but it looks like he benefited from playing in the post so much and developed some nice post moves.
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
