Diamon Simpson is headed to Spain. Several outlets are reporting that the 6'7" forward has signed with Estudiantes, a team in Spain's first division that he played for last season. The signing comes shortly after Simpson parted ways Ironi Nes Ziona of Israel's Winner League. Simpson's last game with Nes Ziona was Feb. 2, and left the club Feb. 28. The former St. Mary's star was averaging 15.7 points per game and was the top rebounder in Israel at the time of his leaving, grabbing 10.6 boards a game.
Estudiantes could certainly use his help as they sit near the bottom of Spain's ACB league with a 4-17 record. Simpson has gone back and forth between Spain and Israel the last few seasons, playing for Nes Ziona in 2013-2014, Estudiantes last season when he averaged 8.9 points and 4.6 rebounds per game. He began the season with Nes Ziona once again before going to Estudiantes. Simpson has played in six countries in his career, including the United States.
