Potential Hornets Pick Sullinger Has Been Red Flagged
Jared Sullinger worked out for the New Orleans Hornets on Monday morning, telling the media afterwards how good he felt and why he and Anthony Davis‘ game compliment one another. A few hours later, a report from espn.com’s Chad Ford came out, claiming that Sullinger has been red flagged by NBA doctors to due the health of his back.
Sullinger missed two games last year at Ohio State due to back spasms.
Most NBA mock drafts list Sullinger as a lottery pick, including several that have him going number 10 overall to the Hornets. With today’s news, there is a strong possibility that he could not only fall out of the lottery, but possibly out of the first round.
Jared underwent several medical tests while at the NBA draft combine last week. Every doctor that looked at him were concerned with his back. The doctors believe the issues could potentially shorten his career.
