Sim’s parents migrated to Canada from Punjab, India for better life. Speaking of his family, he has an elder sister Avneet and a younger brother who is 7 feet 3 inches tall and presently playing basketball for New Mexico State.  Sim’s father Avtar is of 6 feet 5 Inches and mother Varinder is 5 feet 10 inches in height. Sim’s parents had no connection with basketball until their sons started playing this sport for college. And now the whole Indian community is proud of Sim.
