Brandon Paul Getting Second Workout With The Chicago Bulls

USA TODAY Sports

The NBA Draft is this week.

The NBA Draft takes place on Thursday night, and at this point I do not know whether or not Brandon Paul is going to be drafted. I haven't been keeping track of every single mock draft that's out there, I just know that in some he's seen as a second round pick and in others he isn't drafted at all.

I do know that the one at CBSSports.com, one of the few that does both rounds of the draft, does not have Brandon being drafted.

I also know that when it comes to the NBA team I care about, the Chicago Bulls are looking for two things in this draft. A big man and a guard that can score. So maybe that's why I'm not surprised to see that the Bulls are giving Brandon Paul a second workout on Monday.

Former Illinois guard Brandon Paul has been invited to a second workout with the Chicago Bulls on Monday prior to the NBA draft, according to Paul's mother.

Paul, a 6-foot-4, 201-pound shooting guard, has previously worked out for the Bulls, Minnesota Timberwolves, Phoenix Suns, Portland Trail Blazers, Memphis Grizzlies, Houston Rockets and New York Knicks leading up to the draft on Thursday. He most recently worked out with the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday.

While I just want to see Brandon get drafted, from a selfish standpoint, it would be cool if the Bulls took him with their second round pick. Of course, if the Bulls do draft Brandon, he should know that means he'll have a redshirt rookie season. That's just how Tom Thibodeau works, as Jimmy Butler played only 359 minutes in his rookie season before playing 2,134 minutes during the regular season this year before starting in the playoffs. As for this season's rookie, Marquis Teague, he only played 392 minutes and I can't help but think he'd have played a lot fewer had Derrick Rose been healthy.
