Derrick Rose's ACL injury is impacting a lot of analysis on who the Chicago Bulls will be taking in the 2012 NBA Draft. With the star possibly missing a large chunk of next season, there's room for more guards on the team and there will be plenty of options available to the Bulls in that regard.
Walterfootball.com is a site that is usually regarded for their great NFL mock drafts, but they do NBA mocks as well and their latest has Kentucky SG Doron Lamb being taken by the Bulls with their 29th overall selection to fill some of the vacancy in the point producing column:
With Derrick Rose possibly having to miss the entire 2012-2013 season due to his torn ACL, the Bulls suddenly have a need for depth at point guard and could consider Tyshawn Taylor. They could also use some scoring help at the two which gives the nod to Doron Lamb.
Depending on who falls to the Bulls at the positions they covet, this pick could go one of all sorts of ways. It'll be a mystery right up until Thursday when the card is finally turned in. As more news comes in on how long Rose is expected to be out for the Bulls, their priorities may change even further.
