2023 Fantasy Outlook
Outside of a few bright spots, Sims was basically a non-factor during his rookie season, closing as the 281st-ranked player in standard leagues. The addition of Isaiah Roby only complicates things even more for Sims, something that could see him fall out of the rotation altogether. The Knicks are coming off a successful 2022-23 season and will be looking to build on that momentum. Head coach Tom Thibodeau is known for running a tight rotation at the best of times, even when his team is not competing. Barring a couple of injuries to other players, Sims is not worth drafting in most fantasy formats. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Jericho Eduard Sims was born in October of 1998 in Minneapolis. He is the son of Charles and Kimberly Sims. Charles played basketball for the University of Minnesota. Jericho has five older brothers, four of whom played college sports. For prep school, the tall center attended Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Minneapolis and averaged 25 points and 10 rebounds per game his senior season. Sims then committed to the University of Texas, where he majored in African & African Diaspora Studies with a minor in Anthropology. At Texas, Sims was teammates with fellow NBA-big Mo Bamba. Sims played four seasons for the Longhorns. As a senior (2020-21), Sims posted 9.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game. That summer Sims was picked by the New York Knicks with the 58th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. In early August the Knicks signed Sims to a two-way contract.

Gets 29 minutes in return
CNew York Knicks
February 13, 2024
Sims (illness) started at center and tallied four points (2-3 FG) and seven rebounds across 29 minutes in Monday's 105-103 loss to the Rockets.
ANALYSIS
The 29 minutes were a season high for Sims, who took on a big workload in his return from a three-game absence while usual starting center Isaiah Hartenstein (Achilles) missed a second straight game and while Precious Achiuwa logged most of his minutes at power forward in place of the injured Julius Randle (shoulder). Sims could draw another start Wednesday in Orlando if Hartenstein remains out, though Sims will likely see his minutes drop back into the teens -- if he doesn't fall out of the rotation entirely -- following the All-Star break, when Hartenstein should be ready to play with little or no restrictions.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Could join starting unit
CNew York Knicks
December 11, 2023
The Knicks have given "strong consideration" to starting Sims after announcing Monday that Mitchell Robinson will undergo ankle surgery, Stefan Bondy of the New York Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Isaiah Hartenstein seems like the most logical starter at center in Robinson's absence, but Sims is apparently also in the mix to take on a starting role. Sims has been on the fringes of the Knicks' rotation this year but seems to be in line for a larger role regardless of his starting or reserve status. Even if Sims doesn't start Monday against the Raptors, he's a candidate to join the starting five if Hartenstein struggles in the coming weeks.
See All NBA Rumors
2021 Fantasy Outlook
The No. 58 overall pick in this year's draft will fill one of the Knicks' two two-way spots in 2021-22, allowing him to freely move between the NBA team and New York's G League affiliate in Westchester throughout the season. With all of Mitchell Robinson, Nerlens Noel and Taj Gibson ahead of him on the depth chart at center, Sims likely won't have many opportunities to play meaningful minutes for the Knicks as a rookie.
