Former Ohio State big man Jared Sullinger signed a two-month, $300,000 deal in September to play for the Shenzhen Leopards in China, and he was so dominant over that time that he agreed to a lucrative contract extension in November to play through the end of the Chinese Basketball Association season. His numbers this season have been eye-opening, but Tuesday, Sullinger took his production to an even higher level.

He’s currently averaging 31.2 points, a league-high 17.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists for the Leopards in 26 games and judging by the picture below, he has lost a considerable amount of weight.

Against shoddy competition where Marbury thrived after not making an NBA team.

Good for him but this won't translate to even 5 minutes per game in the NBA

I would love to see a Sully/Yabu double screen. You'd need an uber ride to get around them.


Flop tough guy

Good to see him keep the weight off. Always found it fascinating that even the lure of a set-you-up-for-life 1st non-rookie contract wasn't enough to help him overcome his demons.

Good luck Sully. Hope to see you back on a roster someday.

Nobody ever doubted the talent.

Could easily return to NBA as role player at any time he stays at weight and hits a corner 3.

Still a better rebounder than Aron Baynes.

Then again, anyone can put up 40/31/8 in China leagues lol.

Marbury is the GOAT in China

He can still come back to NBA as long as he is committed into maintaining good conditioning. He's a borderline All-Star if he actually came into shape.

In all honesty your rookie first round pick contract should set you up for life if you arenít stupid with your money.
