Report: 7-Foot-5 New Mexico State Center Sim Bhullar Declares For NBA Draft

You may remember New Mexico State center Sim Bhullar from this year’s NCAA Tournament. At 7-foot-5, he’s extremely hard to miss on the court. Next season, fans may have to flip over to an NBA game to catch a glance of the massive Bhullar, as it is being reported that he will declare for the NBA draft.

Bhullar averaged 10.4 points and 7.8 rebounds per game for the Aggies this season. He certainly has “NBA size”, and then some, but his conditioning may be a worry for NBA teams. Bhullar only averaged 26 minutes for New Mexico this season.

Luckily for New Mexico State, they have a replacement for Sim. His 7-foot-3 younger brother Tanveer was a freshman for the Aggies this season.
