Default Mullens to Start Tonight, 1/12/12

From Bonnell's blog:
Quote:
Byron Mullens will start for Bobcats tonight

Byron Mullens will make his first NBA start for the Charlotte Bobcats tonight against the Atlanta Hawks.

Coach Paul Silas announced that at the morning shootaround. Mullins was acquired in a preseason trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Mullins will replace Gana Diop at center.

Silas must have listened to us.

Default Re: Mullens to Start Tonight, 1/12/12

It was only a matter of time before impressive third-year center Byron Mullens cracked the starting lineup. The true 7-footer that spent just one year at Ohio State is clearly the best big man on the Bobcats’ roster, and coach Paul Silas knows it.

"We didn't have a center...It's time to give him 25-30 minutes and see what he can do,” said Silas.

In his first career NBA start Thursday night, Mullens played nearly 33 minutes, posting 21 points and four rebounds. It’s not a fluke. Although Mullens was playing just 19.3 minutes per game coming into Wednesday, he was averaging 11.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 0.6 blocks.

Perhaps the best stat to illustrate Mullens' skill-set is his Mark Price-like free-throw shooting. On the season he’s 25-of-27 from the line, also known as 92.5 percent. Consider Mullens a strong add in all formats, one with way more upside than Pachulia.
