Mullens signed a contract Tuesday with Turkish club Konyaspor that runs through 2017, Sportando reports. Mullens was last playing for the D-League's Sioux Falls Skyforce after washing out of the NBA, as he hadn't appeared in the league since 2013-14 with the 76ers. The 27-year-old will attempt to resurrect his career overseas.
76ers general manager Sam Hinkie announced some housekeeping notes Friday following the draft, noting that guard Jason Richardson picked up his player option for 2014-15 season, while center Byron Mullens did not. Richardson did not appear in a game for the 76ers last season, while recovering from a knee injury. Mullens appeared in 18 games with the 76ers following a late trade, averaging 6.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 13.7 minutes per game.
76ers center Byron Mullens was cleared to return from a five-game absence due to an ankle injury Wednesday against the Raptors, but never saw the floor as he took a DNP Coach's Decision. Mullens has appeared in just 43 games, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that he did not take the floor after being medically cleared. He is averaging just 4.0 points and 1.9 rebounds per game.
76ers center Byron Mullens is expected to be available off the bench Wednesday against the Raptors. Mullens has missed five games with a sprained ankle, but coach Brett Brown confirmed he would be in uniform.
76ers center Byron Mullens will not play Friday night against the Celtics in Boston because of an ankle injury, the Delaware County Daily Times reports. Mullens told the paper he's "day to day" moving forward, leaving his status for Saturday against Brooklyn up in the air.
