Jacob Pullen gets a job … playing basketball in not Turkey but Italy

UPDATE (July 12): Jacob Pullen didn’t sign with a Turkish team after all. Reports last week that he did so were wrong, wrong, wrong. Pullen has reportedly signed with Italian team Angelico Biella, according to the Wichita Eagle. My comments below remain the same, except for the Turkey parts.

Original Story (July 6):
Kansas State point guard Jacob Pullen didn’t get drafted in last month’s NBA Draft. Not a huge surprise. He’d have been a second-round pick at best and likely would have struggled to stick with a team. With the NBA lockout underway, indefinitely shutting down the business of pro basketball (no summer league games, no free agency, nothing), several players are looking for work overseas. And Pullen has finally found work … in Turkey Italy.
