BULLS DRAFT PROSPECTS
When you win only 30-some games, I suppose you have room for improvement pretty much everywhere. So with folly in mind I went over to the NBA Mock Draft Lottery machine over at ESPN. There you can “play the lottery” and it spits out a random draft order. Then the picks are based on Chad Ford’s different scenarios.
I did it 10 times and 9 times the Bulls received the #9 pick overall. Ford has them selecting Kevin Love there. That gave me quite a bit of pause. The 1 different lottery had the Bulls miraculously receiving the #1 overall pick. They selected Michael Beasley.
If it came to #9, I think I’d rather see the Bulls draft a quick point guard like D.J. Augustin or Russell Westbrook. If they had number one do they take Beasley or Rose? Maybe you try and run people off the floor with Thomas, Noah, Hughes and Deng and Rose. At least it would be fun to watch.
