“His potential is crazy,” Lillard said. The next day, at the team’s exit interviews, Lillard said he sees himself in Simons. “His demeanor is what sold me,” Lillard said. “It kind of reminded me of myself a lot — just how in a room full of grown men in the locker room he was never uncomfortable. He was never — if everybody is one side, he’s not going to agree with everybody because he feels he has to. He stands on his own two feet.
Barring some moves, that likely leaves Simons and Evan Turner as backup ball handlers behind Lillard and McCollum. And at first blush, many believe Simons is ready to absorb the responsibility. “I think Anfernee is extremely, extremely talented,” Maurice Harkless said. “I think he is going to be a good player in this league for many years. I think given the opportunity to play, he will play well. I don’t know when that opportunity will come, whether it be this year or the next year, but I’ve seen him put in a ton of work and I’ve seen how talented he is in practice and open run, so I’m excited to see his growth over the summer.”
