Since the pool of draftable players is now solid and Chad has gained more information from "NBA team sources," he has updated his mock draft. For most teams his prognostications haven't changed. For the Bulls, however, things are a-movin'. Ford buys into the Mullens-to-Chicago talk
"Analysis: There's been talk that the Bulls might take a look at Tyler Hansbrough and DeJuan Blair, if available. Both are definitely the kind of player John Paxson likes. But the word around the league this weekend was that the Bulls might have made a promise to Mullens, who has the most long-term upside of any remaining center, a position at which Chicago needs help. He's raw, but it's rare to get a talent like this after the lottery."
Ford still has Hansbrough going 11th to New Jersey, saying that the Nets have narrowed their choice to Hansbrough or Terrence Williams. He has Blair dropping all the way to the Hornets at 21. Personally, with the dearth of big men in this draft, I find that very hard to believe. No doubt teams are leery of committing to him now, but somebody's going to jump on the Blair train before 21 come draft night.
