Fr Henry Carr basketball alumnus, 7'5" Sim Bhullar, became the second former Crusader to sign an NBA contract, inking a deal to join the Sacramento Kings in training camp.  
 
He enters the league with former teammate Tyler Ennis, who was drafted with the 18th overall pick by the Phoenix Suns.
 
Undrafted this spring, Bhullar was a member of the Kings team that won the NBA’s summer league in Las Vegas last month. He will compete for a spot in training camp with centre DeMarcus Cousins and could be a candidate to join the franchise’s NBA Development League affiliate in Reno, Nevada, where he could have more time to develop his skills.
 
Sim made history, becoming the first player of Indian descent to sign a contract with an NBA team.
 
“I’ve long believed that India is the next great frontier for the NBA, and adding a talented player like Sim only underscores the exponential growth basketball has experienced in that nation,” said Kings owner Vivek Ranadive, the league’s first Indian-born majority owner.
 
Earlier this evening, Sim was interviewed by TSN's Jim Tatti & Andy McNamara: http://bit.ly/1BlG9hp
 
At the 5 minute mark Sim briefly mentions his time at Fr Henry Carr!
