Simms will return to Clemson

The Clemson Insider has confirmed that Clemson basketball standout Aamir Simms has withdrawn his name from the NBA Draft and will return to Clemson for his senior season.

Simms declared himself eligible to the 2020 NBA Draft on March 31. The third-team All-ACC forward averaged 13.0 points and 7.2 rebounds per game last season, helping the Tigers advance to the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament before the season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He played in 30 of the Tigers’ 31 games.

Like other former Tigers have done in the past, Simms maintained his eligibility while he went through the draft process.
