2012 NBA Draft: Bulls Meet With Prospect Harrison Barnes

KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune is reporting the Chicago Bulls have met with one of the league's top prospects, SF Harrison Barnes of the North Carolina Tar Heels. According to Barnes, the Bulls sat down mostly to talk about how Barnes would potentially fit on the Bulls team:

"It was good," Barnes said Friday. "Coach (Tom) Thibodeau was there and we just kind of talked about where their team was, where they saw themselves going and the personality traits I have are similar to what they want to keep on that team."

The Bulls, however, are unlikely to get a chance to see how Barnes would fit on the roster, as Barnes is projected to go as a high lottery pick, and Chicago is only selecting at the No. 29 slot -- not to mention the team already has an All-Star caliber small forward in the Luol Deng.
