Palpreet Singh signs NBA Development League contract
– The ACG-NBA Jump program winner becomes eligible for selection in NBA D League Draft –
Mumbai, September 28, 2016: Palpreet Singh, the winner of National Finals of ACG-NBA Jump, India’s first national basketball talent search program, signed NBA Development League contract. The 21-year old will now become eligible for selection in the NBA D League Draft, which will be held in October.
The 6ft 9in hoopster, who has been training at the New York Athletic Club with coach Ross Burn in Manhattan, said he has trained hard and is confident of getting picked by a D League team in the draft. “I am happy with the efforts I have put in and I will continue to work hard and make the most of this opportunity because not many get such a chance.”
Palpreet, who had impressed NBA champion Brian Shaw in the national finals of ACG NBA Jump held in the last week of February, was part of the national tryouts held on August 14, 2016 in New York. Over 200 pro basketball hopefuls exhibited their talent in front of NBA D-League player personnel executives, coaches, and industry scouts that day.
Palpreet sounded confident despite knowing he had competed against over 200 other NBA aspirants. “The competition is tough but it is great to know you are competing with the best to play in the best league in the world.”
Palpreet Singh was discovered as part of an NBA talent search in India. There are more NBA talent searches planned in India and other countries as part of the league’s ongoing international initiatives. The NBA is devoted to identifying and developing talent abroad both on and off the floor.

I am delighted to share with you the Annual Report of the Centre for Policy Research for 2015-16.
This was an especially productive year at CPR. From field defining books to path breaking academic monographs, from a steady range of articles in learned journals to those in less learned journals serving the cause of public outreach, the outputs spanned subjects ranging from international relations to climate change law, India’s contemporary economy to political theory.
We hope some of this work will convey the sense of intellectual excitement we experience at CPR. What we are particularly proud of is the fact that this intellectual effort has been undertaken in good faith, without preconception, prejudice or partisanship. I am constantly grateful that within CPR we are blessed with an environment where there is genuine curiosity, openness to evidence, an ability to play with different arguments and a genuine attempt to try and figure things out. We do not always succeed, but if our work conveys some of that sense of excitement, we will have succeeded.
Going through the work listed here will not just be of academic interest: it will provide a sense of the big issues and arguments confronting India and its place in the world in different ways. I hope this Report will provoke you into engaging with CPR and supporting us. Your support will mean a lot..
With warmest thanks,
Pratap Bhanu Mehta
