Sim Bhullar confident of  getting new NBA contract

Greater Noida : Sim Bhullar, who became the first Indian-origin hoopster to play in the National Basketball Association (NBA), said he is confident of getting a new contract in the next season at the United States-based cash-rich competition.

The seven-foot five-inch Toronto-born Bhullar on April 2 signed a 10-day contract with the NBA team Sacramento Kings. The 22-year-old’s much hyped debut lasted only 16 seconds and he got a total playing time of two minutes and 41 seconds.

“Sky is the limit for me as long as I work hard. I am improving on every front. It is the biggest league in the world so you have to improve,” Bhullar said. “You have to improve on court, off court, your diet. I am confident (of getting a new contract).”

Talking about his experience he said, “I am honoured having played in the NBA. It was a great moment for me. I came into the side later in the season. You have got to earn your minutes in the NBA and that is what it was all about,” he said. —PTI
