Sim is kind of a forgotten prospect, although not one that projects really high at the next level, but an interesting one to say the least due to his size. The 7'5'' 360 lb Freshman is averaging 6.8 ppg 4.6 rpg 1.3 bpg in 15 mpg over his first 9 games.
Do any of you guys think he stands a chance at the next level? Or is he just another example of a guy to big and slow to play in the defensive 3 seconds era?
Barring major injury in the next few years, this guy will find himself on the end of some bench in the NBA.
He may never get more than 20 minutes in a single game, ever in the NBA, but Most teams would love a guy who can give 6 HARD fouls and tip balls loose on the boards in short spurts.
I can easily see him being drafted late first round by a contender to essentially be a Hammad Haddadi kind of player. Probably needs 3 + years at New Mexico State though.
He had 12 and 17 in his first tw games, so there's defiitely potential, if he can get at least 20 minutes cosistently.
No, too big and slow. He'd be a tremendous liability against any team who had a center who could run even a little or that had an outside game.
He will have to lose some weight and just work on his body for 4 years, and develop a 5 foot game and focus on defense. Then he could be on the end of a bench for someone, but it will take a lot of hard work, there is potential but he probably won't make it to the NBA. The Mahamdou Ndiaye to me looks like a better prospect just based on how his body looks even though he is going to UC irvine. he is 7-5 310.
I remember him doing some damage against Nerlens Noel and some other top centre prospects from those 11/12 classes at that international tourney Nike puts on in the summer.
I watched a few of his games including the game against Southern Miss where he had 17, and the man is human molasses. He is very, very, very slow. That said, when he opens up to the ball in the post there is no one at the college level who can go over the top to knock the entry pass away and there are very few bigs quick enough to get all the way around him for a steal. All of his makes in the game were dunks (one drop-in layup). At the NBA level, though, the speed of defensive rotations and help side shot blockers would make him irrelevant offensively while his speed or lack thereof combined with his non-existent explosiveness would render him a liability on defense except in the most isolated half-court defensive sets. Still amazing to see, though. Just my opinion, for the little it is worth.
I'm very aware of what kind of prospect Bhullar is, but the giant players always kind of fascinate me, for some reason.
He's at 10 ppg 6.1 rpg 2.1 bpg in just over 22 minutes per.
12 ppg 7 rpg 3.8 bpg during his last 5 games. He'd still be the slowest player in the NBA, but he's hitting his stride as a freshman. Although, against mid-major competition, Bhullar looks to have the makings of a productive college big, and maybe a guy someone will gamble with in the late 2nd in a few years. I think he'll be better than Kenny George.
I do think he would have a chance of making a roster because of his height like others say. But if he did make the league he would become a dunking target for every athletic guard in the league, like Shawn Bradley was at the end of his career
