“Well, it wasn’t about not playing him at all,” Stotts said. “You know, it was about getting Rondae in the starting lineup, providing some energy, honestly. We’ve got him for 10 more days, and I thought it was a good matchup for him. It wasn’t about not playing Derrick at all — that’s kind of the way it played out, but that wasn’t necessarily the plan going into it. But that was the reason, it wasn’t a decision not to play Derrick.”
Derrick Jones Jr. also offered him a key piece of advice when choosing to go with a dunk: Make sure you make it on the first try. And just how many dunks will Simons have in his bag of tricks? He’s working on four. And if the contest goes into a dunk-off as it did last year between Aaron Gordon and Jones Jr. did, Simons has a bold plan for how to compete. “Anything extra, and I’m just gonna wing it.”
