I'm cautiously excited for Pullz I just don't really understand what changed to get him a chance.  I haven't followed his international career but I assume he still has the same limitations he had when leaving kstate ( not an elite ball handler, physical size, etc)
When the bullets are flying, that's when I'm at my best

i would rather Jacob Pullen make the roster with the 76ers and have a nice little 3-5 year career in the NBA than K-State win even a single Big 12 game this season.
meh, going ofer the conference is just what the program needs - the real sophie's choice is Pullen making the roster means oscar finishes 5th, wins another play in game and gets a real extension

Non-guaranteed, they can carry 20 through training camp, he is number 18.  They carry 15 and usually dress 12 for games.  I doubt he gets more than a few preseason minutes.

TY. I didn't know how this was much different than playing on a summer league team, which he did a few years in a row. I just don't want to get too excited over nothing.

He is Two Way Contract candidate under the new roster rules. The Sixers still have one TWC available to use.

Don't know what any of that means, but if he plays and scores even one point in an actual regular season NBA game then I will be rough ridin' thrilled. Nobody deserves it more.

It's a new wrinkle this year that is aimed to grow the G League (formerly D League) to become more like the MLB minor league system. 26 of the 30 teams now have a G League affiliate.

With the new rules NBA teams are able to expand their rosters from 15 to 17. The additional two spots are "Two Way Contracts", and those two players can spend a max of 45 days on the NBA roster. The rest of the time they can play in the G League while the NBA team still has their rights.

Pullen is a G League candidate because he has less than 4 years of NBA experience, which is requirement of the TWC.

The sixers are very injury prone so he will probably get to play more than expected.

I hope Jake continues to do well, but those 6 points came on two 3s in garbage time.

Also, he's not battling with Fultz for a job so that comparison is pointless. He's competing with guys like McConnell and Blackmon.

I'm starting to get nervous if he'll make the team or not.  :ohno: 76ers scored 133 points last night and only got 3 minutes of playing time. http://www.espn.com/nba/boxscore?gameId=400978685
