He's a compelling 3-and-D prospect. Although Bullock will have no pressure to earn a roster spot this summer, he most certainly will be the most scrutinized and heavily observed Clipper in Las Vegas.
Shooting 43.6 percent from three-point land for the Tar Heels last season, Bullock will be expected to drain open looks. According to DraftExpress, Bullock averaged 1.29 points on catch-and-shoot attempts last year.
Although Bullock is behind both Dudley and Barnes in the depth chart, he should excel on open jumpers from the corner afforded to him by the dribble penetration of Chris Paul and the attention in the post paid to Blake Griffin.
Bullock is also an above-average on-ball defender. He is athletic, with a 6’9" wingspan that should give him the length and speed to cover shooting guards and small forwards. His height and length make him a capable wing or shooting guard on the floor.
The North Carolina product is the only real 3-and-D player on the team’s summer roster and could surprise the Clipper faithful. For a fanbase that has grown accustomed to tracking summer league for a historically futile franchise, Bullock is a welcome change of pace. Any production that he can contribute will be icing on the cake to what has already been an impressive offseason in Lob City
I'm excited about it. Let me know when the NBA season starts again.
