Watch former Syracuse basketball forward Chris McCullough work out in Brooklyn Nets gym

Syracuse, N.Y. — Chris McCullough is making his way back to the basketball court.

The former Syracuse forward, drafted last June by the Brooklyn Nets, continues to rehab his repaired knee. McCullough tore his ACL during a January game versus Florida State in the Carrier Dome. The injury prematurely ended his only season at SU.

The video shows McCullough shooting and dribbling at the Nets' practice facility. That workout session took place on Monday, McCullough said in a message. He said his knee feels better but that he needs more time to rehab and recover.

"I've got a long way to go," he said.

The Nets start the preseason Oct. 5 with a home game against Fenerbahce Ulker of the Turkish Basketball League. McCullough has consistently said he will not rush back to the game before he has fully recuperated.
