Hometown: Seattle, WA
Tre Simmons is a pure shooter from Seattle, Washington. Although he never played in the NBA, the league’s new rule accepting players with professional international experience, made Tre Simmons eligible for this year’s draft.
Simmons played two years at Washington after transferring from Green River C.C.. In his 2004-2005 season, Tre was named All Pac-10 First Team, and set a school record making 80 three-pointers in one season. When asked about the pick, 3-Headed-Monsters head coach, Gary Payton, said he had been following Tre since he was playing high school basketball in Seattle.
Since his college days, Simmons has played internationally in countries like Greece, Spain, Czech Republic, Russia, Puerto Rico and France.
