Rookie Chris McCullough Makes Long-Awaited Nets Debut


Brooklyn Nets interim coach Tony Brown looked over in Chris McCullough’s direction. After nearly 13 months of rehab, it was time for the 21-year-old rookie to make his long-awaited NBA debut.

Brooklyn’s first-round draft pick (No. 29 overall), McCullough had not played in a game since Jan. 11, 2015, the day he suffered a torn ACL just 16 games into his collegiate career at Syracuse.
