Chris McCullough and Isaiah Whitehead team up for back-to-school giveaway

Chris McCullough Per-Game Statistics:24 G, 4 GS, 15.1 MIN, 4.7 PTS, 2.8 REB, 0.4 AST, 1.2 STL, 0.5 BLK, 0.6 TOV, .404 FG%, .382 3PT%, .478 FT%, .463 eFG%, .470 TS%, 12.2 PER It’s hard to grade Chris McCullough after rehabbing a major injury, but he deserves some sort of extra credit for just making it on the court. There’s a long way to go for the Syracuse product, but you can see the traces of a draft steal. A smooth jumper that needs just a little bit of refinement to be consistent, the speed and activity on defense to defend the pick-and-roll and make the extra rotation, the height and vertical to protect the rim and put an opposing player on the wrong end of a poster. The traces of a modern power forward are there, it’s up to Mr. McCullough to do the work. -Ryan Carbain

Always good to see […]
