Blazers take guard Anfernee Simons with 24th pick

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) The Portland Trail Blazers acquired two guards during Thursday's NBA draft, landing IMG Academy's Anfernee Simons and Duke's Gary Trent Jr.

Simons was the 24th pick of the draft. Portland got Trent after acquiring the rights to the 37th pick by trading two future second-round picks to Sacramento.

The 6-foot-4, 180-pound Simons didn't play in college. He initially committed to Louisville but after the school fired coach Rick Pitino in October, Simons opted to attend IMG Academy in Florida. Simons, who turned 19 this month, averaged 22.4 points and shot 45 percent last season.
