Sacramento Kings sign 7-foot-5 Sim Bhullar, 1st player of Indian descent to sign with NBA team

Sim Bhullar has signed a contract to join the Sacramento Kings in training camp, becoming the first player of Indian descent to ink a deal with an NBA team.

The Kings announced Bhullar's deal Friday. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

The 7-foot-5, 360-pound center was born in Toronto and played two seasons for New Mexico State, where he averaged 10.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks to lead the Aggies to back-to-back NCAA tournaments. Undrafted this spring, Bhullar was part of the Kings team that won the NBA's summer league tournament in Las Vegas last month.

Kings owner Vivek Ranadive, the league's first Indian-born majority owner, says in a statement he's "long believed India is the next great frontier for the NBA."
