(CBS) As the NBA draft combine continues today at Quest Multisport in the city, the Bulls have set their sights on scouting and talking to an array of wing players, according to a report from CSNChicago.com beat writer Aggrey Sam.
Among the shooting guard/small forward prospects that Chicago has interviewed, plans to interview or plans to work out at or after the combine are Duke’s Rodney Hood, Michigan’s Glenn Robinson III, UCLA’s Zach LaVine, Kentucky’s James Young, Michigan’s Nik Stauskas, Wichita State’s Cleanthony Early, Michigan State’s Gary Harris and former North Carolina standout P.J. Hairston, Sam reported.
Clemson’s K.J. McDaniels also expressed interest in the Bulls, and Chicago had an interview with Creighton power forward Doug McDermott on Friday, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Bulls general manager Gar Forman told the Tribune on Thursday that Chicago will keep its option open, including the possibility of dealing the 16th and 19th overall picks they own in the first round. Through it all, adding a shooter/scorer appears to be front and center on the franchise’s mind.
If there's been one consistent theme to Bulls' offseason thus far, it's this: Add shooting.—
