Anfernee Simons, named by his parents after Penny Hardaway, worked out for the Lakers today and is eager to show teams that he is NBA-ready despite skipping one year of college for the IMG Prep Academy. The 6-4 guard averaged 22.4 points, 6.7 rebounds and shot 45% from 3 for the post-grad team and he turns 19 on June 8.
