Simon is embarking on his third consecutive EuroBasket after making a debut in 2011. At that tournament Croatia might have failed miserably, but the lefty combo-guard grabbed the chance he was given, and has become a regular member and a key contributor for Croatia ever since. With a long-ago developed scoring habit, the 30-year-old Simon is no stranger to being among Croatia's top scorers at the end of the night. He is not the most athletic of players, but he keeps defences honest with his sweet three-point touch, and the ability to penetrate, while being a great ball handler with a knack to find an open man. Such versatility, combined with his size, allows coaches to comfortably use him at both guard positions, but also exploit mismatches at small forward. In other words, when the game is on the line, Simon is likely to be on the floor.
