The Pacers might look to put some more depth behind Paul George, especially if Danny Granger continues his battles with injury.

One of their defensive strengths (as we all know is their most important attributes) is their size at the wing.  So, they’ll want to add to that.

That’s where Bullock comes in. Coming in at 6’7 (and a solid 200 pounds) with a nearly 6’9 wingspan, he has good size for a long swingman. He would fit into the Pacers’ system.

Bullock has a great sense of competitiveness and effort on the defensive end as well, making him exactly the right person to play for this defensive-grinding team.

Additionally, Bullock occasionally flashes his explosiveness on offense, even more rebounding ability on an already big team and a dangerous spot-up shot.  Additionally, he is a three-point threat, converting 43 percent of his attempts this past year.

Basically, he brings a preset of defensive attributes that the Pacers will find fitting, along with potential to help out a team that’s offensively suspect.
