The Chicago Bulls have been, arguably, the best team in the NBA over the past two regular seasons. Had Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah both been healthy this postseason, it's possible the playoffs could have shaken out differently.
But with Omer Asik, a huge (literally and figuratively) factor off the bench for the Bulls, in need of a new contract, there are questions about where this team is heading. The bench is as much a part of their success as anything else, and with Rose out for a good portion of next season, their bench is even more critical. Amid reports of Luol Deng being traded (big contract, playing in the Olympics despite being injured each season), adding some depth to that position makes sense. So is there any help on the way this week via the draft?
David Thorpe says Jared Sullinger's workhorse personality would match up well with Bulls big Joakim Noah
