        The Bulls drafted a really good player. Just don’t know where his minutes will come from with Chicago’s frontcourt logjam.

    Nice grab in the draft. This kid has allstar written all over him. He wasn’t drafted earlier and he has a chip on his shoulder. Although he is happy to land wirh a contender. My rookie of the year if he gets playing time. If he fascinates the Bulls they will have to make a decision by allstar break and move gibson, noah and I wouldn’t count out gasol. The player who is playi g the worst is gone unless they can get a better trade value with someone playing better.
