A 3 & D point guard? Shot 36% from 3 last year and is a Big Ten All-Defensive Team.

I'm watching this interview right now:

He's small, but doesn't seem to be an absolute scrub or anything from what I've seen so far. I trust our scouts, so we'll see.

When the Clippers said they had a bunch of dogs, Klutch took it personally.

Inspired by the Last Dance, maybe.

Ok. He deserves to be a Laker with that shot.

Maybe there is a prerequisite now that any Laker PG can’t hit FTs. He can’t shoot and won’t make it a day in the NBA.

This must be a favor for another agent.

Simpson's agent is Brian Jungreis.

The real answer is probably just that Rob and others in the FO watched a lot of Michigan for obvious reasons and liked the kid.

Welp, Simpson supposedly has the best sky hook since Kareem, so he's all good in my book.

He should learn to shoot free throws underhanded and complete the old school style of play. I always thought the hook shot was one of the more unblockable shots and players should learn it. I think I found a new favorite player.
