Simmons signs for two more years in Israel

Former Husky Tre Simmons is headed to Israel for another two years, according to this story today from EuroLeague.net.
As the story details, Simmons has signed with Maccabi Tel Aviv, generally regarded as one of the top teams in Europe. That’s the same team Simmons helped beat earlier this year when he was playing for Hapoel Holon. Simmons scored 18 points as Hapoel Holon beat Maccabi Tel Aviv for the Israeli League title, a performance that evidently impressed the right people.
Simmons has spent the last season-and-a-half in Israel, and obviously is enjoying it despite the fact that his season last year was interrupted briefly after a scary incident when a fan threw a large firecracker on the court near the end of a game. He returned home to regroup for a few days after that incident and I caught up with him to talk with him about that after a win over Eastern Washington.
CONROY TRYING OUT IN SAN ANTONIO — Another former Husky, Will Conroy, has set his sights on making it back to the NBA. Conroy has spent the past two days working out for the San Antonio Spurs. Conroy said last month he has several offers for summer league teams but is trying to decide which one will give him the best avenue back to the league.
