Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
Sims figured to be in position to make a jump on some draft lists during the past year, but that didn't play out that way. He never averaged 10 points per game in four college seasons, but there's something to be said for his consistence.
His most productive season came in 2019-20 when he posted 9.7 points and 8.2 rebounds per game while shooting 65.8 percent from the field. He nearly matched those numbers during the past season (9.2 ppg. 7.2 rpg., 69.6% shooting).
His shooting is mostly around the basket, so a lack of proven range is something that's bound to be a concern for some teams. Because of this, he might be slotted more for a center (or "5") role rather than a forward. Given that, he barely makes it into the top 10 on some lists of draft-eligible centers.
A recorded vertical leap of 44 ½ inches draws attention.
He played four college seasons. He'll turn 23 in October - or right about the time the next NBA season begins.
ANALYSIS
Positives: His body is probably close to NBA-ready as physically he should be able to compete.During his time at Texas, he played behind both Mo Bamba and Jaxson Hayes, so he should have a concept of competition against pro-level talent. Because of his athleticism, Sims should be capable of handling various defensive assignments. Some projections cast him as a rim protector.
Negatives: He might be overly selective on offense, or just not aggressive enough and creative enough to find more shots. He's not likely to produce his own offense, so he'll rely on teammates to set him up and that's not always an ideal way to get attention going into the draft. He never shot better than 60 percent on free throws, a rate that declined to 52 percent during the past season.
