  • Link is down for me Doug.

  • Hopefully both of these picks make good use in trade(s) for some of the names the Bulls have been linked to. Regardless, this should be a fascinating draft. I wonder where Embiid might fall or if Cleveland is just going to take the chance for a franchise big man with the #1. There's the possibility of multiple all-stars in this draft. Very exciting.

    "There's the possibility of multiple all-stars in this draft."

    True, and each one of the top ten could be a bust. Of course, they all won't, but there seems to be no sure thing this year.

    Also, several picks from 11 to 20 will likely turn out to be very good.

    Ideally, the Bulls make the big trade for Melo right before the draft, without overpaying either with players or salary. We'll know soon.

  • In reply to rustyw:

    Chad Ford of Espn projects 9 all stars and says it is the deepest draft in history, expecting starters to be available in the second round (too bad the Bulls will sell that pick for cheap). Before Embiid's injury, he had the top three guys as the #9,10 and 12th best prospects in the last 25 years.

  • It would be nice to know in regards to draft targets if Nikola Mirotic is ready/committed to coming over this summer. Not that I have great confidence in Gar/Pax steering Nikola over here sooner as in now rather then later. If the answer is yes and Taj doesn't get traded then an "NBA ready" guy like" guy like PF Adreian Payne probably isn't the best fit. Other ready to play guys a C.J. Wilcox. Maybe a T.J. Warren, though he doesn't provide the perimeter shooting they need. If we can't swing Love or Melo getting Afflalo and an offensive talent would not be a bad day's/summer's work.

  • In reply to RoadWarrior:

    I'm sure GarPax know where things stand with Mirotic signing this year or next. They're just not telling us fans or media, which they shouldn't, its a private business matter, and Bulls FO is very secretive.

    Agreed Mirotic's status will and should play a significant part in which directions Bulls take this off-season with their other moves. We're simply in the dark and must wait to see how it plays out.
