I was thinking about placing him there a few days ago, I thought he may be just what they needed, but I was too darned scared to do it because Taylor is so erratic that I didnt think the Bulls would want him. Updating my mock now.
I saw this too. I'm not happy about it either.
I just read that too... don't like it at all- someone valuable is going to slip at 29- if it's some kind of promise, they can really miss out on someone better...
I know you guys dont like it, but if this is true, obviously, the Bulls love him...and I can see why.
He is a great backup for Rose because he is a similar player. Taylor is extremely athletic with demonic speed, but also, he is a good on-ball defender....which is why the Bulls really like him. He is a really good choice to backup Rose at PG and give them some insurance where they wont have to change their play much. Taylor is a streaky shooter but good enough to keep defenses honest. He can create off the dribble and in Kansas system, he learned to be a very good Pick and Roll player...on both ends.
The kid is really good and I always felt underated because of his erratic decision making. If he can put it together, this would be an excellent pick for Chicago, he basically fits everything they need and want in a player.
Bulls are better off swapping #29 to Cavs for #33 and 34. Cavs Ive heard do not want so many rookies in camp and the Bulls can get Taylor at 33 plus another prospect. At 34 add a sg like we all thought they would look for like Doran Lamb, Fournier, Jenkins or Middleton. Cavs can jump up to 29 and add probably Quincy Miller or Wroten. Theyll at the least add depth to their bench with Miller ability to play the 3 or 4 and Wroten the 1 or 2. Both have potential to beed very good players.
Wow Bulls better be trading down then. Give the Cavs the 29th for 33 an 34....Grab Tyshawn Taylor an either Doron Lamb, Miles Plumlee, Quincy Miller, Tony Wroten, John Jenkins, Quincy Acy, Will Barton. That way he wont get a gauranteed contract an we can pay them the minimum.
This isnt going to happen...Bulls never say who their going to draft an I have no clue who this reporter is. Sounds like Taylor's agent is trying to raise his stock or something. Bulls arnt drafting a rookie with a gauranteed contract to be Rose's backup
