NEW YORK — Former Syracuse forward Chris McCullough was selected by the Brooklyn Nets with the 29th pick of the NBA Draft on Thursday night.
“I am from New York City. I’m from the Bronx,” McCullough said. “So being called to play for the Brooklyn Nets is a big thing for me to have that opportunity, so I’m blessed for that.”
In his only year at Syracuse, McCullough was averaging 9.3 points and 6.9 rebounds before he suffered a torn ACL in January and missed the rest of the season. He is expected to return to action sometime in the winter.
“I should be able to play by November,” McCullough said. “I’m not going to rush it. I’m just waiting my time, that’s it.”
