2012 NBA Mock Draft: Chad Ford's Mock 9.0 Says Bulls Will Grab SG Will Barton

The latest NBA mock draft from ESPN's Chad Ford suggests the Chicago Bulls will grab the 6-foot-6 guard from Memphis, SG Will Barton. According to Ford, the Bulls may be in store for a great value -- if Barton gets by the Timberwolves:

29. Bulls -- SG Will Barton

Analysis: The Bulls are looking at a number of 2-guard options here, but over the past few weeks, Barton has separated himself from the pack. He could go as high as 18 to the Wolves and I don't think he slides past Chicago here.

Barton played two seasons with the Memphis Tigers, and the Baltimore native made an impressive mark in his sophomore campaign, landing over 50 percent of his field goal attempts while averaging 18 points per game. Here is a look at his 2011 numbers:
