Scarlet and Gray's Jared Sullinger Focused on Winning TBT, Impressing NBA Scouts

When Jared Sullinger was drafted by the Boston Celtics following his sophomore year at Ohio State, the only questions surrounding his game were about his health.

Sullinger still struggled to stay healthy with the Celtics, suffering a stress fracture in his foot during the 2014-15 season. Following the 2015-16 season, he signed a free-agent deal with the Toronto Raptors, but played in just three games before being traded, and ultimately waived by the Phoenix Suns in February of 2017.

He missed the remainder of the regular season, and ended up joining the Ohio State alumni team, Scarlet and Gray in The Basketball Tournament for the summer of 2017, hoping to win his share of $2 million, but also to show NBA scouts he was still worthy of an NBA contract.
