Two days after making his Wizards debut against the Toronto Raptors, big man Chris McCullough has been sent to the NBA Developmental League, CSN has learned. McCullough is expected to play for the Northern Arizona Suns.

McCullough, 22, was acquired by the Wizards last Wednesday in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets. He came to Washington along with veteran Bojan Bogdanovic for a protected first round pick and bench players Andrew Nicholson and Marcus Thornton.

McCullough is in his second NBA season. He was selected by the Nets 29th overall in the first round of the 2015 draft.

In two seasons, McCullough has appeared in 39 NBA games. He has played in 31 D-League games with averages of 18.1 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. McCullough was a 2016-17 D-League All-Star.
