San Antonio Spurs news: Jonathon Simmons working toward a return to the NBA

Few players have the background story of former San Antonio Spurs wing Jonathon Simmons, a 6-foot-6 athlete with sound defensive instincts and a versatile offensive repertoire. Now 30 years old, Simmons notoriously paid to try out for the Austin Spurs before becoming a 26-year-old rookie in the 2015-16 season.

Simmons worked his way up as a G-Leaguer before making the main squad in San Antonio. He leveraged his 133 games with the silver and black into a contract with the Orlando Magic a year and a half later, finally getting the payday he dreamed of.
