Thunder starting Zavier Simpson in NBA debut Tuesday
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Zavier Simpson will start in his NBA debut on Tuesday versus the Portland Trail Blazers.
Simpson agreed to a 10-day hardship contract with the Thunder on Tuesday. The 25-year-old guard went undrafted in 2020 and has never appeared in an NBA game, but he should see plenty of opportunities in Tuesday's tank-off.
numberFire's models project Simpson for 24.2 minutes, 14.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.8 steals, and 2.0 3-pointers on Tuesday.
