Whom will the Bulls take with the 29th pick of the NBA Draft? The Sun-Times analyzed 25 mock drafts and here are the results. The first number represents the number of mock drafts that picked that particular player.
1: Draymond Green, Michigan St., PF, 6-6, 235, 22: Intriguing player because he’s one of the best passing big men and is the kind of player that could fit in with the Bulls, even though he doesn’t matchup well defensively against small or power forwards.
2: Marquis Teague, Kentucky, PG, 6-2, 165, 19: The brother of Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague was a key player for the national champions. Has top-end talent but needs to learn to play more under control and to give more effort defensively.
2: Doron Lamb, Kentucky, SG, 6-5, 199, 20: More a slasher with excellent range than a pure point guard. Played critical role on both ends for national champs. Sometimes struggles to get a shot and finish inside. Could be solid defender for Thibs.
2: Orlando Johnson, Santa Barbara, SG, 6-5, 224, 23: Small-school concerns alleviated by solid play against quality competition. Has great range and played some point. Had a knack for taking and making difficult shots while being team's centerpiece.
2: Evan Fournier, Poitiers (France), SG/SF, 6-7, 206, 19: Is budding star after averaging 14 points in 26 min. during his second full season in French first division. Can create own shot and has 3-point range but can he continue to improve at NBA level?
3: Tony Wroten Jr., Washington, PG/SG, 6-5, 203, 19: Wroten has the size and athleticism to have a lengthy NBA career. He’s aggressive with the ball, can create his own shot and is a solid defender. Needs to improve his left hand.
3: Tyshawn Taylor, Kansas, PG, 6-4, 177, 22: He’s got the first step and top-end speed to be a quality replacement for Derrick Rose but hasn’t always made the best decisions on and off the court.
4: John Jenkins, Vanderbilt, SG, 6-4, 212, 21.: Might be best pure shooter in draft, especially when it comes to spotting up and coming off screens, which makes him candidate to fill Kyle Korver’s role. Doesn’t excel in other areas, especially defense.
6: Will Barton, Memphis, SG/SF, 6-foot-6, 174 pounds, 21: Long, athletic player who works and rebounds hard. Needs to pack on some muscle but could be a sleeper. Ability to penetrate is intriguing for Bulls team that sometimes has trouble creating shots.
