I really see D Rose making him into a very good player....At Ohio State Mullens didnt have a pass first great PG like Rose...he had Evan Turner who imo was kind of selfish from the times ive watched OSU...All Rose has to do is penetraite the lane and find a open Mullens either for a alley oop or a easy dunk. I think Mullens will surprise people if he lands in Chicago. I think he could be a monster around the rim...wanting to dunk everything possible.

i think u just described tyrus thomas. cept now thomas has midrange

xcept hes not 6'10, 210

ben gordon was a guy he trusted and always passed to when he was open.  those other guys are not the kind of shooters i'm talking about, they are more mid range guys.  how many times did we see rose get hinrich, deng or salmons a wide open shot and those guys would pump fake then try to step in to get a better shot and end up passing up a wide open 3 for a contested 20 footer? they are not the kind of guy's rose needs.  i said when he was drafted that deng and hinrich had to go and

yeah, mullens is much bigger than ty and has legit center size unlike ty, who doesn't even have legit 4 size.  he's also already got a jumper, and has some skill in the post, much more than ty ever will.  the only problem i've seen is the ability to pass out of double teams and just bad decisions in general leading to turnovers, this will continue to be a problem for him once he hits the nba level for sure, but it's nothing he can't work on and overcome.  getting a guy as good as i think he'll be with the 16th pick would be amazing, basically a more athletic kaman or nene with a bit more size.

Exactly...Mullens has post moves and has much more offensively then Tyrus does, and what vitalnerve just said about the passing out of the double teams and bad decisions, thats all going to improve with time as he gets older more expierenced, i agree with you. Last year was probably his 1st year playing against guys that actaully can play against him...in HS he just dominated whenever he wanted too, i think at 16 with the upside he has is a great pick. Nene/Kaman i like that a lot.

Yeah, I think that's an excellent way to describe him, kinda a mix of the two.

Ive looked throughout all the draft sites and some draft experts are actaully saying Mullens can play the 4 in the NBA too....I never really thought about it because i see him more as a center, but i guess i can see him play the 4 at times. He has the athleticism to do it. If we take him, the Bulls could possibly have a VERY BIG lineup with Mullens at the 4 and Miller at the 5. Deng or Thomas at the 3 and Salmons or Deng at the 2.

Big Lineup
Rose 6'3
Salmons 6'6'
Deng 6'9
Mullens 7'1
Miller 7'0

This Lineup could play together for some small minutes and could cause some major mismatches against some teams, they wouldnt be able to match up with us, plus we would just have a ton of size in the paint....should be able to out rebound most teams and not get bullied around like the Celtics series.

I disagree with that Miller statement. Yeah he is getting older and won't be anywhere near his prime, but he is still important to this team more so because of his ability to mentor the other bigs.

Though he might be getting old, i dont think he is done just yet....he can still shoot and thats all that matters. Your shot is the last thing that will leave you. With that big lineup, you could have 2 big guys running pick and rolls with. Miller can pick and pop, while Mullens can pick an roll. I think it could work for some small minutes. Miller could play the Elbow like he usually does while Mullens is posting up. You also got some high low action right there.

Looks like the T Wolves are willing to sell their pick outright....i would grab that 18th pick and then sell/trade our 26th. Personally i think that would be a great move for the Bulls.

The Board Will Shuffle: In talking to several league sources this week one comment kept coming up over and over "If they keep the pickā€¦" it seems this could be shaping up to be one of the busier drafts in terms of pick shuffling, so don't fall in love with anything outside of the top overall selection. Memphis at #2 is expected to trade down, the Wizards at #5 are talking about trading the pick, Minnesota at #6 could move down, New Jersey at #11 could move down, Minnesota's #18 could be sold or traded outright, the Hawks at #19 could move their pick, the Kings at #23 could move that pick, Portland at #24 could move up, Oklahoma City at #25 could deal that selection, Chicago at #26 could trade out of that pick, Memphis at #27 is expected to sell this pick, Minnesota at #28 is expected to keep this selection all though if the player they covet is gone so could the pick, and the Lakers at #29 are expected to deal this pick for future considerations. Looks to be a busy night, here are today's draft notes:

I would go buy that 18th pick and then sell my 26th....i think the 18th pick makes like 1.7 mil or something and the 26th pick makes like 1.3 mil..(just guessing on the numbers), not a big difference at all in the money area, but the players at 18 are way better then 26.

I agree that the Bulls should buy that 18th pick or at least some other mid-round pick from maybe Phoenix or Atlanta. But I wouldn't say that the players at 18 are way better than at 26, just slightly.

I assuming that Maynor/Clark/Hansbrough/Twill could be there at 18th....i dont think theyll be around til the 26th. At the 26th you could probably grab....Derrick Brown/Sam Young/Summers/Collison....I like Young an Summers but i rather have 1 of those other 4 from the 1st group. I agree, there not that much better, but i like those players a lot more.

I guess Terrence Williams is more weird then a trouble maker, check this out

Want to know why Terrence Williams' stock is all over the place? He's an eccentric kid. Not necessarily a bad kid, but definitely different. Everyone loves his talent, but some are just a little uneasy. Someone forwarded this little blurb to me from a Sports Illustrated piece on Louisville in March. I think it sums things up: "The last line of Williams' pregame monologue is a request for all his dead relatives -- his father, Edgar; his grandparents Mary Jackson and Bobby Perkins; and two cousins -- to 'watch over me as I have fun.' Their names are tattooed on his left arm and concealed by a compression sleeve that he says he wears to keep connected to them, spiritually. Williams may well be the only player to wear a sleeve solely for that reason, but he has always been sartorially idiosyncratic. He often wears custom-made photo T-shirts as tributes to teammates and coaches (his Pitino shirt has a shot of his coach playing point guard at UMass in the early '70s), and he sometimes shows up for practice wearing two different- colored shoes.
