Sims scouting report and highlight reel after The Jump:Here's a little diddy we wrote for the Piston site Piston Powered before the NBA Draft:
In the highlight video below, Henry summarizes himself and teammates as follows. "We play hard from beginning to end and . . . we handle our business on and off the court." Sims certainly did that over the past year. A late bloomer after beginning his career behind (now-Piston) Greg Monroe, Sims flourished in his senior year, displaying his full range of skills as well as impressive athleticism. Big Hank led Georgetown in both blocked shots and assists, a testament to his versatility and a remarkable achievement even in a Georgetown offense that features its big men. Sims not only clogged the lane on defense but also was its vocal leader, directing a defense that ranked in the top ten nationally. Having stepped into the role of senior leader, Sims also stepped up his game on a bigger stage, putting up consecutive 20-10s in the Big East Tournament. In all, Sims is a skilled, athletic big man who's still just scratching the surface of his ability.
We'll have more details as this story develops, but for now a huge congrats to Henry Sims.
