Tom Ziller, SB Nation's chief NBA analyst, has released his latest and final mock draft. According to Ziller, the Chicago Bulls will look to France for their next young prospect, selecting SG Evan Fournier in the upcoming 2012 NBA Draft:
29. CHICAGO BULLS: EVAN FOURNIER
Fournier is a 19-year-old shooting guard who has played professionally in Europe since 2009. Sam Amick's mock draft also had Fournier landing in the Windy City, as did earlier mock drafts from Sports Illustrated.
According to Draft Express, Fournier averaged 14.0 points and 1.5 steals per game in his final season in Europe. Chad Ford's analysis on ESPN says Fournier has good penetration and mid-range skills, but still needs to add strength and improve his long-range work. But for a Bulls team hurting for shooting guard production, those might be acceptable shortcomings.
