Simmons will have a cap hit of about $5.7 million in the 2019-20 season though he is only guaranteed $1 million per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. He averaged 6.5 points and 2.3 assists in the 2018-19 season.
This is an interesting decision by the Wizards’ front office because they are buying a second round pick when they have sold many others in the past. Let us know what your thoughts are of this transaction in the comments below.
