7'5 center Sim Bhullar will declare for NBA Draft, according to report

Steve Dykes

The New Mexico State big man does not project to be a top pick, but his size alone should get him some looks.

New Mexico State sophomore Sim Bhullar will forgo his remaining two years of eligibility and enter the NBA DraftScout.com's John Gershon is reporting.

The towering 7'5 center showed value for the Aggies the last two seasons, but only in spurts. He's been a consistent 10-point, seven-rebound guy at New Mexico State, but has not seen the minutes that his size might typically command. He's known to fatigue easily and has battled foul trouble at times.

Bhullar currently does not project to be a first-round pick. If he remains in the NBA Draft pool anyway, he will miss out on the opportunity to play alongside his brother, Tanveer, who was a redshirt 7'3 center at New Mexico State last season.

In 30 games this season, Bhullar shot nearly 65 percent from the floor and blocked 3.4 shots per game. His 99 blocks in the regular season put him in a tie for seventh in the nation.
