Not that I would have expected it, especially coming from a Chicago writer, but there was no love for the Pistons and their 2nd round steals.

I guess we shall see what turns up with the rooks, but I dont think Curry will excel. Teague/Harden will be busts, but thats a homer outsider's perspective.

Weak rankings. He doesn't even how DeMar DeRozan among his top 10 and he's likely going to be starting games for the Raptors at SG. Rodrique Beaubois??? WTF?

DeRozan hasn't had the strongest of preseasons, and he might not start when Antoine Wright returns from injury (which is soon). But I agree with you, Beaubois shouldn't be on this list.

And Jennings is shooting too poorly to be on this list..sure he's averaging nearly 12 points a game, but he's shooting 0.341% FG and 0.238% from the 3. So either he has poor shooting mechanics or is taking a lot of poor shots.

He's going to have to if we are going to have any kind of success. Losing Bell really hurts. I guess the only good thing is the strength of our depth is at Bell's spot.

Biased? Of course it is, the guy is a Bulls fan. Blair is wayyy too high and Rodrigo Deabouis as well but other than that I think its decent.

really his ratings is based on how well da rookies played during preseason and blair was a beast during preseaon hince da high rating his was given. So all of u can calm down he just a local writer and not like he works for espn. Its jus a preseason ranking based off a bulls writer.

x2 ... budinger will surprise everyone. He has impressed so far during the pre-season, lots of people are saying that he and Blair will be the steals of the draft.

budinger two years ago was projected to go number 1 in the draft this year and he fell off hard in college. i dont think he will surprise anyone
