Update: Instead of signing with Partizan, Jacob Pullen has inked a one-year deal with Hapoel Jerusalem where he will compete in both the Israeli League and Eurocup.

What was once believed to be a step closer to the NBA with the Philadelphia 76ers in summer league has now turned into preparing for another season overseas for Jacob Pullen.

The former Kansas State standout point guard who went undrafted in 2011 is reportedly close to signing with Partizan Belgrade in Serbia after spending last year in Italy with Angelico Biella.

But the possible one-year deal with Partizan isn't the only area where Pullen is making some noise.

You can look to his play with the Georgia National team for that at the 2013 Eurobasket Qualifier in Slovenia.

That's where Pullen (who has both an American and Georgian citizenship) went 0-8 from the field before hitting three three-pointers and the game winner at the buzzer to beat Latvia, 79-76.

Not only was this a win for Georgia but Partizan too as Pullen looks to impress by averaging 16 points and 2.5 assists in four games in Slovenia.
