The Los Angeles Clippers selected former North Carolina Tar Heels’ swingman Reggie Bullock in hopes that he could grow into a key role at a position the Clippers had a big need for. However, Bullock struggled as a rookie and could not get onto the court.
Jabari Davis of Basketball Insiders believes Bullock is going to get a huge opportunity and the early going of the season and needs to make the most of it.
Great point with Barnes as he does tend to miss a bit of action and have his ups and downs from time to time. My guess is that a guy like Reggie Bullock is going to be given the opportunity to earn some playing time. He didn’t play all that much last season, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see them give him a decent look at least through training camp, preseason, and the early going. Brewer is an interesting alternative for teams looking for swingman depth, as I believe he recently resolved the legal issues he was dealing with. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him on a roster at some point this season.
Bullock averaged just 2.7 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.3 steals per game while shooting 35.5% from the field, 30.1% from beyond the arc and 77.8% from the free throw line. He appeared in only 43 games and played just 9.2 minutes per game. He only saw action in two of the Clippers’ 13 postseason games, playing just five total minutes. He took just one shot in the playoffs, hitting it, to finish with two total points.
