Rayvonte Rice was in Chicago on Monday for a pre-draft workout with the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls, who currently hold pick No. 22 (first round), went 50-32 this season before being eliminated in the second round of the playoffs by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rice isn't currently projected to be picked in the draft, but there's always a chance that a team could take a flyer on him in the second round. So, in all likelihood, the only way he'll land with Chicago is if they make a draft-day trade to acquire another pick. If he doesn't get selected, he could also sign as an undrafted free agent.

In addition to the Suns, Rice has also worked out with the Utah Jazz, Los Angeles Lakers, and Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix Suns, and Houston Rockets this offseason.

For fun, here's a highlight reel from Rice's two seasons with the Illini.
