    I’m a die hard Bulls fan. I think the Bulls would draft for picks #16 and #19 players in the following order if available:

    1. SG/SF James Young, F, Kentucky 6’7″ w/6’11″ wingspan – All around offensive game with the tools to be a stopper on

    defense.

    2. SG/PG Zach LaVine, G, UCLA 6’5″ with 6’8.5″ wingspan – Taller Nate Robinson with the tools to be great on defense

    someday and develop Russel Westbrook explosiveness.

    3. PG Elfrid Payton, G, Louisiana Lafayette 6’3″ w/6’8″ wingspan – Much longer more athletic Kirk Hinrich type Thibs would

    love.

    4. SF/SG K.J. McDaniels, F, Clemson 6’6″ w/6’10″ wingspan – A college version of Jimmy Butler clone. Exactly what the Bulls

    need at Small Forward right now to get Butler’s minutes down and prevent injury. Another super athletic lockdown defender

    with an extremely high basketball IQ and improving offense that could develop into an option at Shooting Guard as well.

    Also give the Bulls a “smothering” lineup with elite defenders at all 5 positions (gulp!).

    5. PF Adreian Payne, F, Michigan St 6’10″ w/7’1″ wingspan – Super athletic PF who can shoot with range. Has Asthma type

    health issues which limit his number of minutes to 25 minutes per game or he’d be a top 5 pick, But with Boozer in 2014 and

    Mirotic in 2015 to go with Taj Gibson as the starter. Payne is the perfect backup in limited stretches.

    For Round #2, I believe the Bulls would be thrilled if any of these players fell to them (in the order I think ther’d be

    intrest):

    1. SG/PG Devyn Marble, G, Iowa 6’6″ with 6’9″ wingspan – Versatile all around guard with the size and stroke to play

    Shooting Guard and the passing skills to play spot Point Guard.

    2. SG C.J. Wilcox, G, Washington 6’5″ w/6’8″ wingspan – Superb scorer, defender, and rebounder.

    3. C/PF Isaiah Austin, C, Baylor 7’0″ w/7’3″ wingspan – Athletic Center prospect that can do a little of everything on

    offense and defense but is *stick* thin (220 lbs) will need to add 15 lbs each season of muscle for a couple of years but

    could be worth the investment.

    4. SG Markel Brown, G, Oklahoma State 6’4″ w/6’8″ wingspan – Might be the most explosive player in the draft. Good hooter

    and scorer good at everything but master of nothing on both offense and defense.

    5. SF Thanasis Antetokounmpo, F, Delaware 6’7″ w/7’3″ wingspan – Much more athletic than his brother “The Greek Freak”.

    Incredible defensive potential. Shows a developing offensive game.
