(SB Nation Chicago, Bradley Woodrum) A pair of backcourt prospects -- Terrell Holloway and Jared Cunningham -- spoke with the media about potentially luring the Chicago Bulls into selecting them in the upcoming 2012 NBA Draft:
Xavier's Tu Holloway on Monday workout: "With Derrick Rose hurt, they told me they’re definitely looking for more guys in the backcourt."— K.C Johnson (@KCJHoop) June 7, 2012
Oregon State's Jared Cunningham on Bulls workout: "I can fit their needs of being an athletic combo guard. That's what they're looking for."— K.C Johnson (@KCJHoop) June 7, 2012
The Bulls will likely be without their star PG Derrick Rose for at least half the season, requiring them to appeal to the rookie talent pool for help. Rose played in only 39 of the Bulls' 66 regular season games before tearing his ACL in the opening series of the 2012 NBA Playoffs.
