Trail Blazers guard Anfernee Simons is the latest NBA player to get involved with Jr. NBA at Home.

The program is a free interactive digital content series that provides basketball drills featuring both NBA and WNBA players that can be completed individually as well as in limited space. The series looks to inspire youth around the world to stay active in a healthy and safe way.  

Simons demonstrated a seated dribbling drill for kids to do at home in their own living room.

With the COVID-19 pandemic keeping families at home and kids unable to play with their friends and teammates, Jr. NBA at Home is hoping these videos will inspire youngsters to continue to work on their game and connect with the NBA.

So far, the NBA has published dozens of Jr. NBA at Home videos. Current NBA and WNBA players have rallied behind the initiative including Thunder forward Danilo Gallinari, Seattle Storm guard Jewell Loyd, NBA legend Muggsy Bogues, and now Simons is the latest player to get involved.
