Former European basketball journeyman Jacob Pullen is reportedly heading to the NBA.
After spending last season with Khimki Moscow, Pullen has inked a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to David Pick.

Pullen has spent a total of six years in Europe enjoying spells in Italy, Israel and Spain among others.
The move though has been met with slight criticism, citing that the Sixers found room for Pullen but not for Spanish international Sergio Rodriguez, who has since left Phily for CSKA Moscow.
Is it a joke? No place for @SergioRodriguez but pullen has… What has he done in Europe? Did u say euro star, seriously David?
