The Reno Bighorns have traded Sim Bhullar to Raptors 905, receiving Ricky Ledo in return. Bhullar was signed to the Sacramento Kings as an undrafted free agent in 2014. Bhullar played in three games for the Kings last season, logging just three minutes of game time. The 7'5" Bhullar made history as the first player of Indian descent to play in the NBA.

Bhullar spent most of last year in Reno, where he developed surprisingly well. Bhullar entered the season nowhere near game shape, even by D League standards. He worked his way into shape, and averaged over 25 minutes per game. That's no small feat on a team that plays as fast as the Bighorns did. He averaged 10.3 points, 8.8 rebounds, and a whopping 3.87 blocks per game.

Bhullar holds additional appeal for the Raptors 905, in that Bhullar is a member of the Canadian National Team, and should draw local interest from Canadian basketball fans.
