Former Indiana guard Jordan Hulls signed a contract to play with Polish team Energa Czarni Slupsk.
The former Hoosier sharpshooter confirmed Monday.
It seemed like the best fit for me financially, and then also just playingwise getting to play at the next level is good any place you can go and play, he told The Journal Gazette. I was waiting to hear back from summer league, and I still may be able to do that, but I plan on going over there and playing. It’s the best fit for me. Maybe be able to move my way up and see what happens after that.
Hulls, a 6-foot guard who averaged 9.7 points and 2.9 assists last season, had talks with the Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers and Detroit Pistons for summer league spots.
The Pistons had the most interest in him, he said, but roster spots might not come to fruition.
We’re still waiting to see if there’s any spots, Hulls said. I’m just really excited to get over there and play and figure it out. If I play well, then whatever happens happens, and I’ll just go from there.
Hulls was a 44.4 percent three-point shooter during his senior season and helped lead the Hoosiers to back-to-back Sweet 16 appearances. He is a member of the 1,000-point club at IU.
Barring a chance at a NBA squad, Hulls will head to Poland and participate in the Tauron Basket Liga – in English, the Polish Basketball League. He said the details of his contract have not yet been discussed in detail.
It’ll be a little bit different, he said. I’ll talk to a lot of people and try to find out different things about it, but I’m definitely excited about it. It’ll be a good challenge for me.
