Sims has been covered on this site many times before, the most recent of which was here. In summer league for the Lakers, Sims averaged 8.6 points and 5.8 rebounds in 25 minutes per game, helping to bolster his stock that has wavered for a couple of years.

   Top 101 NBA Ten-Day Contract Candidates (When 20 Would Probably Have Been Enough)
2011-01-05

Courtney Sims - As usual, Sims is with the Iowa Energy. His stock has wavered over the last year, after previous being a highly desired fringe NBA centre, but he's in the midst of a good season that has put him back in the frame. Sims is averaging 18.4 points and 9.6 rebounds, shooting 59% from the floor and 74% from the free throw line. Alarmingly, he is turning it over 3.4 times per game, and is not much of a defensive presence, yet he is that rare and special creature, the 6'11 scorer.

Courtney Sims - After a blistering start to the 2008/09 D-League season, Sims became hot sizzle. He had already played in training camp with the Pacers (2007) and the Hornets (2008), but it was that year that he really broke out, winning the D-League Player of the Year and All-Star Game MVP awards, and averaging 22.8ppg/11.0rpg/2.0bpg. It earned him midseason call-ups to both the Suns and Knicks, and then for training camp 2009, he signed with Atlanta, where he failed to make the cut. Sims trailed in other leagues last year (Belgium, China, D-League, Puerto Rico), and his star was definitely burning brighter at this time last year, but he should still probably come with a training camp contract somewhere.

Courtney Sims

After a blistering start to the 2008/09 D-League season, Sims became hot sizzle. He had already played in training camp with the Pacers (2007) and the Hornets (2008), but it was that year that he really broke out, winning the D-League Player of the Year and All-Star Game MVP awards, and averaging 22.8ppg/11.0rpg/2.0bpg. It earned him midseason call-ups to both the Suns and Knicks, and then for training camp 2009, he signed with Atlanta.

ims did not make the Hawks team - they refused to have any centres - and therefore went to China, but didn't win a roster spot in tryouts. Since then, he's been around the houses. Sims first went to Russia and signed with the fabled CSKA Moscow, but was released after only one game and was replaced with Pops Mensah-Bonsu. He then returned to his former stomping ground when he joined the Iowa Energy of the D-League, but wasn't as good there as he has been in the past, averaging only 12.4 points, 6.6 tebounds and 3.1 fouls in 19 minutes of 14 games. Sims left the D-League in March to play for the Capitanes of Arecibo - the Puerto Rican team who for some reason have juggled both Puerto Rican BSN play and American minor league PBL play - averaging 9.0 points and 4.4 rebounds in five BSN games. While there, Courtney's name was erroneously listed on latinbasket.com as something extremely NSFW, which was amusing. However, he again moved team in April when he left Puerto Rico to sign with Charleroi in Belgium. He averaged 8.2 points and 5.8 rebounds in helping them win the Belgian league title.

Sims's star was burning brighter at this time last year, but he should still probably come with a training camp contract somewhere. With DJ Mbenga not coming back, the Lakers could find a use for him.

Courtney Sims - 5 games, 20.1 mpg, 9.0 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 0.4 apg, 0.0 spg, 1.4 bpg, 45% FG, 33% 3PT (2-6), 64% FT

ims has been in and out of the NBA for a while after tearing up the D-League in 2008-09 to the tune of 22/11. He hadn't really been a serious NBA prospect before then, after being decent but not great in his four year career at Michigan. This year, Sims has been around the houses, starting with the Hawks in training camp, then moving to Russia to sign with the fabled CSKA Moscow, but being released after only one game and replaced with Pops Mensah-Bonsu. He then returned to his former stomping ground when he joined the Iowa Energy of the D-League, but wasn't as good there as he has been in the past, averaging only 12.4 points, 6.6 tebounds and 3.1 fouls in 19 minutes of 14 games.

- Courtney Sims

Sims joined Siler at the Hawks' training camp in October, and, like Siler, he lost out on a roster spot to Hunter and Morris. Like Siler, Sims then went to China, but unlike Siler, Sims dildn't win a roster spot in tryouts.

Since then, he's been around the houses. Sims first went to Russia and signed with the fabled CSKA Moscow, but was released after only one game and was replaced with Pops Mensah-Bonsu. He then returned to his former stomping ground when he joined the Iowa Energy of the D-League, but wasn't as good there as he has been in the past, averaging only 12.4 points, 6.6 tebounds and 3.1 fouls in 19 minutes of 14 games. Sims left the D-League in March to play for the Capitanes of Arecibo - the Puerto Rican team who for some reason have juggled both Puerto Rican BSN play and American minor league PBL play - averaging 9.0 points and 4.4 rebounds in five BSN games. While there, Courtney's name was erroneously listed on latinbasket.com as something extremely NSFW, which was amusing. However, he again moved team earlier this month when he left Puerto Rico to sign with Charleroi in Belgium. He has averaged 7/7 in his two Belgian league games so far.
