Good news for Indian sports lovers! Our very own Sim Bhullar announced on Twitter that he signed his first professional contract with the Sacramento Kings! Bhullar was a back-to-back Western Athletic Conference Tournament Most Valuable Player for the Aggies before leaving school after his sophomore season. The Kings open training camp for the 2014-15 season in September and he will be a part of his first training. This is seriously awesome news for Indians worldwide. His tweet itself touched our hearts! Check it out:

P.S: We read somewhere that Bhullar grew up playing only Kabaddi, even after being born and brought up in Canada! This one is surely a desi boy; kill it at the ring Bhullar, we’re all so proud of you. :)
