According to Mike McGraw from the Daily Herald, the Bulls will select Tyrus Thomas with the 2nd overall pick in tonight's draft.
McGraw writes: "Unless something unexpected happens, the Bulls will select Thomas with the No. 2 pick in tonight’s draft. The Bulls also own the No. 16 pick of the first round."
I couldn't be happier. I think the kid is a killer.
McGraw goes on to write about Thomas' incredible NCAA tourney run:
"Thomas produced 15 points, 13 rebounds and 7 blocks in a 1-point loss Jan. 7 at Connecticut. In the NCAA regional, Thomas had 9 points, 13 rebounds and 5 blocks in an upset win over Duke, then 21 points and 13 boards against Texas to send LSU to the Final Four."
NBA Draft.net also has the Bulls selecting Thomas. At 6'8" 217, there is some discussion as to whether Thomas is a 3 or 4. I have the answer. He is both. I liken him to Antonio McDyess from what I've seen. And pre-injuries Antonio McDyess was a very bad man.
At 16, NBA Draft.net has the Bulls selecting Thabo Sefolosha. For some time they had the Bulls getting Ronnie Brewer at that slot, but they have moved his projection up to the 15th pick.
Sefolosha is said to be an outstanding 3-point shooter with "extremely long limbs" who is a good defender and ballhawk.
