Jordan Hulls has found a new basketball home. It’s just 4,557 miles away from the place he’s called home all his life.
The recent Indiana University graduate and Bloomington native confirmed Tuesday that he has signed a contract to play for Energa Czarni Slupsk of the Polish Basketball League. Slupsk, founded in the Middle Ages, is about an hour from the Baltic Sea.
“I haven’t ever been out of Bloomington more than two weeks at a time,” Hulls said by phone Tuesday night. “It will be culture shock for me.”
But on the court, where Hulls averaged 9.7 points and 2.9 assists as a senior for the Hoosiers, the game is expected to be the same.
“Basketball, you can direct people where to go,” he said. “But going out in the city and the language, those will be different things.”
The season in Poland doesn’t begin until October and runs through late May or early June, leaving open the possibility of playing in the NBA summer league.
“There’s still summer league talks, and I can still do that even with signing this deal,” Hulls said.
