Cedric Simmons to sign with Peristeri?

According to, Cedric Simmons(2.06-PF) is about to be announced by Peristeri, the team that returned to the A1 league after 5 years. The administration of Peristeri working in conjuction with the best scout in Greece, Steve Yatzoglou, managed to secure another great transfer in their effort to make sure that Peristeri has returned for good.

Simmons was selected by the New Orleans Hornets at number 15, in the first round of the 2006 NBA Draft. In his 2nd year at North Carolina State University, he averaged 11.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 2.5 blocks per game. Simmons managed to play a total of 75 games in the NBA between Cleveland, Chicago and Sacramento but an ankle injury didn't allow him to get more playing time. Simmons is an addition to Peristeri that will surely make a difference and it will also be a chance for him to get his career back on track.

Edit : Apologies for the wrong photo, it was done in a bit of a hurry. Thanks for everyone who let me know.
