NBA Draft Rumors: Will Sim Bhullar Be First Indian Player Drafted? 7-Foot-5 Prospect Would Be Largest Player in League [VIDEO]
When asking about the biggest names in the NBA Draft the names Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid are the first you will see. None of those players live up to the scale of the literal biggest player in the draft, Sim Bhullar.
You are probably asking yourself “who?” when it comes to Bhullar, but rest assured he is a name you will want to watch come Thursday. At 7’5", Bhullar is the biggest player in the 2014 NBA Draft and would be the tallest player in the NBA if he is selected.
The New Mexico State big man is a two time WAC Tournament MVP and averaged 10.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per game with his time with the Aggies. Bhullar has a chance to make history on many levels in the NBA. Not only would he be the tallest player in the NBA the second he is drafted, but he would also be the first-ever NBA player of primarily Indian descent.
The team that takes a chance on Bhullar will not only get a large body to shape in the image of the team, but would also get a player that can serve as an ambassador to an completely untapped area of the world--India.
With the NBA Draft Thursday night, many will be watching to see where Bhullar ends up,e and when he is selected it will be a major accomplishment for the NBA as a league of the world.

Sim Bhullar is a steal in the NBA draft. Talented no doubt, but his potential global impact makes him a wise investment. Represent Punjab! — Bilal Saeed (@bsaeed) June 25, 2014
