Jacob Pullen Just What Sixers Need
Each of the last two seasons, the biggest need on the Philadelphia 76ers' draft board has been perimeter shooting, yet the team has opted for a best-available approach, which has netted them frontcourt products Nikola Vucevic, Lavoy Allen, Maurice Harkless and Arnett Moultrie. Not too shabby. But a guard to keep an eye on is former-Kansas State guard Jacob Pullen.
Pullen made nearly 300 3-point baskets in his four years for the Wildcats and has already netted seven makes in two Summer League games; he has led the 76ers in scoring both games, with 15 in the loss to Indiana and 23 in the recent loss to Utah. While never a true point guard, Pullen has managed to tally 6 assists to 4 turnovers thus far, showing some ability to give the team minutes as a second or third guard off the bench.
