NBA Mock Draft 2012: DraftExpress Projects Bulls To Take Orlando Johnson

In their final mock draft to be released before Wednesday night's NBA Draft Lottery, DraftExpress.com projects the Chicago Bulls to select UC Santa Barbara shooting guard Orlando Johnson with the 29th overall pick in the upcoming draft.

Johnson, 23, emerged as a star for the Gauchos over a three-year career there, leading the school to consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances during his sophomore and junior seasons. The team went 20-11 during his senior season but failed to qualify after losing in the Big West Conference Tournament to Long Beach State.

A quality shooter and rebounder, Johnson averaged 19.7 PPG on 45 percent shooting, 5.8 RPG, 2.9 APG and 1.1 SPG during his senior season. Measuring in a 6-foot-5 and 205 pounds, he has the size to handle both guard positions in the NBA.
