Anfernee Simons, named by his parents after Penny Hardaway, worked out for the Lakers today and is eager to show teams that he is NBA-ready despite skipping one year of college for the IMG Prep Academy. The 6-4 guard averaged 22.4 points, 6.7 rebounds and shot 45% from 3 for the post-grad team and he turns 19 on June 8. Simons — who has worked out for Chicago, Phoenix and Portland and has visits scheduled with Utah, Orlando, the Knicks, Philadelphia and Milwaukee — said he made an impression on Lakers president Magic Johnson and GM Rob Pelinka. "They said you played really well and they were impressed by me coming in being so young and playing like I'm older than everybody else," Simons said.
